Families from Marshfield and surrounding towns are invited to a Car Seat Safety Event at the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield, 37 Proprietor’s Drive in Marshfield, on Saturday, June 26, 2021 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This is a free event.
The Car Seat Safety Event would serve to inspect car seats installed in vehicles and correct any errors in installation.
“Statistics have shown that car seats that have been properly installed have saved many children during car collisions,” explained Massachusetts State Police Trooper Jessie Barbosa who is a certified Car Seat Technician.
Trooper Barbosa and her team would also take the time to educate families in car seat safety, whether their car seat may have been recalled, and whether the car seat they have is right for the age and weight of their child.
“The Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield is an essential community connection for many families and provides critical services and information,” said Jim Bunnell, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield. “This educational event will help to ensure that children are safe when traveling in a vehicle.”
An Impaired Driving Awareness table, organized by the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office, will be set up during the event as well.
This event is presented by the Massachusetts State Police, the Marshfield Police, the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office, and the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield.
