Car Seat Safety Community Programs
Proper car seat use saves lives!
Join staff from Trinity Medical OB/GYN and Catholic Health for our Car Seat Safety Program. These community events are planned throughout September to help parents and caregivers ensure their children are riding safely.

Walk-up checks are welcome. However, please considering calling us at (716) 447-6205 to ensure we have time to check your car seat and address any questions.
*For best results, please bring your child or children so that we can ensure the seat(s) is correctly adjusted for their height and weight.
Car Safety Classes
Many parents are shocked to find out that car seats are usually used incorrectly (up to 93% of car seats used incorrectly at hospital discharge in the most recent American Academy of Pediatrics study). Right now this class is being offered primarily as an online Webinar with a Child Passenger Safety Technician or instructor. Follow ups are offered as a virtual car seat check with an instructor as a 1:1 FaceTime, Video Call, or Webinar in order to go over personal features of your vehicle and your car seat and insure a safe install. For our car seat grant program, 1:1 in person appointments will be scheduled.
The Class Webinar is about an hour. If you would like a virtual car seat check, that takes an additional half hour to an hour – which is scheduled separately so you can be at your car at the time of the appointment.
