RSAs Check it Fits Service
This September the RSAs Check it Fits service will be visiting County Cavan. Did you know its the law that all children under 150cms or 36kgs must use a child car seat appropriate to their weight and height. In Ireland as many as 4 out of 5 child car seats are incorrectly fitted which can lead to serious injury or even death in a collision.
Since October 2013, the RSAs Check it Fits Service has checked over 21,000 child car seats and restraints in Ireland. Worryingly, 79% of seats required a major adjustment, of which 3% were deemed not fit for purpose and condemned, meaning they could have caused injury or even death in the event of a collision.
The Check it Fits service is quick, its easy, its free. On the day our experts will advise on how to fix any problem, demonstrate how to fit the restraint correctly and answer any queries participants might have. Our experts aim to put parents, grandparents and guardians minds at ease that their childs car seat is safely and securely fitted in their car.
We will be visiting the following locations in Cavan:
|Toyota||Erne Motor Works, Dublin Road||Cavan||Wednesday 6 September 2017||10.00am 5.30pm|
|SuperValu||Kells Road||Kingscourt||Thursday 7 September 2017||10.00am 5.30pm|
We would be delighted if you could help us to raise awareness of child safety in cars by letting colleagues, friends, family members and any other relevant contacts know about our upcoming visit to Cavan. We have included a copy of our poster which may be useful for promoting the Check it Fits Service in your workplace and local community also.
If you have any questions or require any additional information please let us know for more information on the service visit www.checkitfits.ie. We look forward to seeing you in Cavan.
