Proper child safety seats can save your child’s life during an automobile crash. Local fire departments and hospital in the St. Louis area want residents to know they can help properly install child safety seats in vehicles.
If a parent or guardian needs help, there are many places available to offer assistance. A medical professional at Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital reminds parents that children are the safest riding in the back seat of a vehicle and no child should ride in the front seat until at least eight years of age. Missouri State law requires children who are less than four years of age or weighing under 40 pounds to be secured in a child safety seat that is age appropriate.
