Success Story

“Olivia” is a firefighter who visited our Safe Kids program for a free car seat inspection. During her visit, she learned that her baby’s car seat was installed incorrectly, and she received instruction on its proper installation and use. Mere weeks later, an off-duty Olivia awakened in a hospital bed with a broken pelvis, a dislocated shoulder, and additional injuries that would require numerous follow-up skin grafts. To this day, Olivia has no memory of her motor vehicle accident. She had to be told that she wasn’t at fault…and that her baby girl was found cooing securely in her car seat without a scratch or bruise. Olivia credits Safe Kids’ free car seat inspection with saving her baby’s life. She has since become a volunteer Child Passenger Safety Technician Instructor for the program.
