This year our certified car seat experts at Cypress Creek EMS provided 246 free inspections to parents in our service area. National statistics show that four out of five are installed or used improperly, so it is an important public service that is provided free of charge.
CCEMS has four certified inspectors on staff who inspect and help parents correctly install their car seats at various events and every Wednesday by appointment only at our Education Center located at 7111 Five Forks, Spring, TX 77379.
In November, Cypress Creek EMS joined forces with the Harris County Emergency Corps and Safe Kids Greater Houston to hold a car seat inspection event at Meyer Park on Cypresswood Drive in Spring.
In addition, grant funding from the National Safe Kids Coalition allows CCEMS to provide brand new car seats to deserving families. In 2015, 23 seats were provided to families in need.
Since 2009, CCEMS has inspected 1606 car seats and has provided 162 seats to deserving families. If you’d like to have a car seat inspected or would like to help expert help to install yours, please call 281-378-0800 and make an appointment. Many thanks to our certified inspectors: Destiny Petty, Holly Pichette, Kristen Roszko and Falishia White. If you know new parents, please share this information with them.
Under Texas law an age appropriate child safety seat system must be used until the child reaches 8 years of age or 4 feet, 9 inches in height.
