Center for Safe Alaskans’ Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Program supports state laws in keeping children safely secured each time they travel in a motor vehicle by promoting car seat and booster seat use. We offer individual appointments with parents and caregivers to educate them on the proper use and installation of their car seat.
For families in financial need we also offer a limited number of car seats and booster seats for a nominal donation. Our CPS Instructors give presentations statewide to groups, schools, agencies and institutions to promote proper transportation of children. Along with our partners, Safe Alaskans hosts many public car seat check-up events statewide every year. Safe Alaskans is a lead agency in the Alaska CPS Statewide Coalition to help coordinate CPS activities statewide.
Safe Alaskans has concluded its sixth Booster Seat Observation Survey. Alaska implemented a Booster Seat Law in September 2009. A study was conducted prior to the law which found a baseline of 52% of booster-aged children properly restrained.
After the law and a multi-pronged campaign, booster seat use has steadily shown improvement up to 79% use in 2013. Results of the 2018 study will be posted shortly. Details of the previous booster seat studies are available here.
Nationally Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians are available to answer your car seat questions and provide education on the proper installation and harnessing of your car seat or booster seat. Call today to set up an appointment. Precautions will be taking to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID.
