Funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, Community Action Partnership’s Keep 'Em Safe Program promotes the safe transportation of children through child passenger traffic safety education that raises awareness and knowledge of child passenger safety geared towards to low income communities, underserved populations, refugees, parents, guardians, and caregivers, as well as providing child passenger safety education training for Social Workers, Public Health Nurses, and Public Safety Workers.
Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death among children 1-19 years of age, with unrestrained or improperly restrained children being the number one contributing factor. Motor vehicle occupant injuries and deaths are preventable with appropriate child safety seat and seat belt use, as well as education for parents. The enforcement of restraint-use laws, such as the use of booster seats for children, is also critical to preventing motor vehicle crash injuries.
The primary goal of the Keep ‘Em Safe program is to provide services to promote the safe transportation of children, by enhancing child passenger safety through an education program for parents or guardians and child safety seat check-up events to promote the proper use of safety seats and seat belts for children of all ages, air bag safety and raise awareness of leaving children unattended in a vehicle. The program will increase child safety seat compliance, and decrease unrestrained or improperly restrained injuries and fatalities for children, by insuring that all children no matter what their ethnic origin or caregiver’s financial situation have access to federally approved, correctly installed car seats.
