Child Passenger Safety Technician Training

A Child Passenger Safety Technician Training is being held January 5-8, 2016 at the Casper Fire Station #1 in Casper, WY. The training, which is standardized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, was developed because of the increasingly complex issues involved in child passenger safety and because unintentional injuries, including motor vehicle crashes, continue to be a leading cause of death and injury to children. Topics covered during the 4-day course include: basics of injury prevention, crash dynamics, vehicle occupant protection systems, selection of child passenger restraints, correct installation of child safety seats, misuse and compatibility issues, safety in other vehicles, and setting up a child safety seat check up event. The newly certified technicians, under the supervision of Child Passenger Safety Technician instructors will perform FREE child safety seat checks for families January 8 from 12:00-3:00 pm at the Fire Station. Agencies supporting the training include the WYDOT Office of Highway Safety and Safe Kids Wyoming. [image: Inline image 1] #WYDOT #oilcity #whatshappening
