Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat Installation Workshop Program

Canadian International Auto Show

 

I have been recently given an opportunity to attend  the launch of Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat Installation Workshop Program at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto this past weekend. Organized as a fun event at the Auto Show,  The workshop consisted of a kid-friendly brunch, followed by family-fun activities geared towards learning about car seat safety.

After the event, we were also given tickets to enjoy the Auto Show as well, where we walked around swooning over all sorts of cars- new cars, sports cars, prototype cars and some classics as well.


It was a day well spent in every way.

In the morning, along with a bunch of other families and caregivers, we learned from a certified technician how to correctly install a car seat at the  Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat Installation Workshop Program .

And in the afternoon, we had a blast enjoying the Auto Show and the stories of which will find home in ¬†yet another post of mine ūüôā

Mean time, here are some details on the Chevrolet Safe & Sure Car Seat  Installation Program that you would be interested to know about.

Chevrolet Canada is partnering with Parachute Canada to ensure the safety of our children while in a vehicle. The above said Car Seat Installation Workshop aimed at spreading the word about offering families expert advice on installing car seats into any make or model of vehicle for free.

Families and caregivers can sign up for the free workshops at www.safeandsure.ca.  Sessions will begin at Chevrolet dealerships in Vancouver and Toronto in April 2014.  Dealerships in Montreal will begin offering the workshops in late spring 2014.  Regardless of the  vehicle you drive, or the type of car seat you own, parents and caregivers can register online now for their free expert consultation.

These workshops were first initiated in Toronto back in 2012 and 2013. The response from parents, grandparents, expectant parents and caregivers were so positively overwhelming that Chevrolet is working with Parachute to now offer this program in three major cities.

Watch this video for more information on the program:

Natalie Nankil, Public Relations Manager, Chevrolet Canada says:¬†‚ÄúSafety has always been a priority for Chevrolet.Knowing that car seat safety has become such a concern, and that parents are looking for know-how and support, Chevrolet decided to help all drivers with the new Safe and Sure program.‚ÄĚ

    I’ve been looking at all these photos and I love those cars in the exhibition. And the car seats – oh so cute and I bet their really strong and reliable too. I don’t have kids, but if I had, I’d be using these as well!

    Chevrolet should definitely gain points by these classes. It’s amazing how many people do not install their car seats properly.

    That is so cool! I would love to attend a workshop and auto show. Of course, learning about the safety rules of car seats are definitely important. I bet it is so nice to see prototype cars….

    Seat belts are so simple solutions and yet they save lives. It is great to see your child safe and sound if you ever involve in an accident. It is not a joke, if a child isn’t wearing a seatbelt he/she would be shooting like a bullet out of a car in a collision. No matter how safe cars or roads you build you cannot legislate for human error or negligence. But authorities and concerned organizations can do their best to educate people. Nice to see large corporations giving back to the community.
