Events and Things to do in Reno, Nevada
REMSA’s Point of Impact program encourages parents to ensure their car seats are properly installed. A properly installed car seat can reduce the risk of death by as much as 71 percent. When visiting the checkpoint, parents should bring their child(ren) and car seat(s) and schedule about 30-45 minutes; longer for more than one seat. Staff and volunteers will check for obvious defects and determine whether the car seat appears on a national recall list. In addition, they will check the installation, correct any problems and provide education on the proper use and installation of the car seat.
This outreach program encourages parents to check the car seat to make sure it has all its parts, labels and instructions. It should also never have been involved in a crash. REMSA will help people register their car seat with the manufacturer if they have not done so already. Registration makes it easy for the manufacturer to contact the consumer in the event of a recall.
