State Farm Child Safety Day in partnership with Family Fun Blast

While motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of unintentional death of children over age one in the United States, many of these tragedies could be avoided through appropriate safety restraint use.
In May, State Farm® will reinforce its ongoing commitment to child passenger safety by hosting its Sixth Annual Child Safety Day at more than 150 locations across the country. Through these events, parents will be educated about the importance of properly buckling up children, on every trip. Child Safety Day focuses on the significance of car seats, booster seats and seat belts for children riding in motor vehicles.
State Farm agent Kelly Wike, along with her team, will host free inspections of child safety seats on Saturday, May 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. The event will be held in partnership with the Family Fun Blast, Tyrone Rotary Club and Blair County Safe Kids, at Tyrone Area High School.
Appointments are required for seat inspections. Those interested should contact the office of agent Kelly Wike at 814-684-0502.
“By hosting Child Safety Day events, State Farm continues its commitment to child passenger safety. Parents are educated on the proper safety practices for children riding in cars,” said Kelly Wike. “We are pleased to work with community partners to be able to offer this service to our community.”
Since 2001, State Farm has hosted events at more than 1,200 sites and has inspected more than 46,000 child safety seats. State Farm has fostered an ongoing research partnership with The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia called Partners for Child Passenger Safety (PCPS). This joint effort represents the largest study ever conducted in the world of children in motor vehicle crashes.
