SUNY Ulster Coordinating National Child Passenger Technician Training and Car Seat Clinic


SUNY Ulster Coordinating National Child Passenger Technician Training and Car Seat Clinic October 10 – 13

October 5, 2018, Stone Ridge, NY – SUNY Ulster’s Mid-Hudson Health and Safety Institute is coordinating a National Child Passenger Technician Training Course October 10 – 13. The training will be held at Ulster Hose on Ulster Avenue in Kingston.

Law Enforcement, Human Services, and other Child Safety Advocates from NYS and around the region will be attending the training. The in-depth training course covers crash dynamics, vehicle and occupant safety and child development geared toward injury prevention and transporting children safely.

Upon completion of the course, technicians will offer a Car Seat Clinic at Ulster Hose on Saturday, October 13th. The clinic is free and open to the public from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Bring your current car seat and your child for a complete car seat check.

Caregivers will also be educated on the proper seat installation for their child. Unbeknownst to caregivers, most car seats are incorrectly installed which can result in injury or death in a crash. Correct installation of car seats is effective in reducing the risk to children.

This training is part of a grant project at SUNY Ulster sponsored by the NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.
