SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 21, 2014) - Rosendin Electric, (www.rosendin.com), the nation's largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, is sponsoring a free child car seat safety fitting and inspection with Safe Kids (http://www.safekids.org/coalition/safe-kids-california), the global organization dedicated to promoting children's safety. The car seat inspection is scheduled to take place at the Kohl's parking lot at 2323 McKee Road, San Jose, August 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Statistics show that a correctly installed car seat can prevent injury or death to a child in 73 percent of automobile accidents; however, four out of every five child car seats are improperly installed. Safe Kids is committed to promoting child safety around the world, including organizing safety fitting and inspection events for parents.
Members of the California Highway Patrol, as well as the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, will be on hand for the August event to conduct inspections and demonstrate the proper use of car seats. Replacement seats will be provided, when appropriate, at no charge, while supplies last. The safety fitting and inspection is open to anyone who wants to ensure their car seats are installed correctly.
"We are delighted to be able to help Safe Kids fund and organize this safety inspection for parents," said Aaron Muffi, Safety Manager at Rosendin Electric. "With financial help from Aldridge Electric and Bay Tool and Supply we were able to purchase new car seats, tents, and coolers for the event. Rosendin Electric has received national and local recognition for our on-the-job and at-the-office Safety Program, so this is a great way to carry our message to the community and help save children's lives at the same time."
This is the second time that Rosendin Electric has sponsored with Safe Kids. Last October Rosendin Electric worked with Safe Kids to sponsor a similar event where they were able to help 53 families, including inspecting child car seats and replacing 23 faulty seats.
