“Safely Home” Car Seat Safety Event

Dominican Hospital, in conjunction with Lucille-Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, is holding a free car seat safety inspection event on Saturday, June 18th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  For more information on this event, see the flyers listed on our Car Seat Safety page. Below are some alarming statistics from a 2015 study, regarding infant and child safety seats (courtesy of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration):

  • Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death among children ages 1 to 18.
  • The overall critical misuse for child restraints is about 73 percent. 
  • Infant seats have the highest percent of critical misuse, followed by rear-facing convertible seats.
  • Booster seats have been shown to reduce the risk of serious injury by 45 percent compared to seat belts alone for children ages 4 to 8 years.
  • Children should ride in a back seat until they are at least 13 years of age.
  • Children 2 to 5 years of age using safety belts prematurely are four times more likely to suffer a serious head injury in a crash than those restrained in child safety seats or booster seats.
  • When installed and used correctly, child safety seats and safety belts can prevent injuries and save lives. Child safety seats can reduce fatal injury by up to 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for toddlers (ages 1 to 4).
  • It is estimated that 284 children were saved due to restraint use in 2012 alone.
  • From 1975 through 2012, an estimated 10,157 lives were saved by child safety seats or adult seat belts for children ages 4 and under.

SCAM ALERT - Beware of False "Firefighter Charity" Calls Minimize

Residents of Aptos and the surrounding area are being targeted by a phone scam operation.  Callers claim to be firefighters with the Aptos/La Selva Fire District, who are collecting money for a Burn Foundation (or other) charity cause.  We urge the public to NOT give any credit card information, bank numbers or other personal info to these callers.  They are not associated with the District in any way, and local law enforcement has been alerted to the issue.  These callers seem to be using rotating cell phone numbers with a local (831) area code, which disconnects immediately after calling.
