Free Child’s Car Seat Safety Checks

November 2015- November 2016

Motor vehicle crashes remain the leading cause of death of children, ages 3-14. However, many of these deaths can be prevented through the proper use of child safety seats. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), child safety seats can reduce fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers, ages 1-4.

The problem is most parents and caregivers are unaware of the risk to children when they are not properly restrained in child safety seats. North Whidbey Fire and Rescue is proud to partner with Safe Kids Northwest Coalition along with South Whidbey Fire/EMS, Whidbey General Hospital EMS, Central Whidbey Fire and the Oak Harbor Fire Department to sponsor free child car seat safety checks. These checks, performed by nationally certified child passenger seat technicians, are for any caregiver transporting children in vehicles.

When: Odd months, first Tuesday, 3-5 pm; 30-45” per seat/child

WSRB Fire Protection Class Rating

North Whidbey Fire and Rescue recently received a Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau, Fire Protection Class rating of 5 in most areas of the county. The WSRB evaluates cities, towns, fire protection districts, and suburban or rural entities to determine the fire protection capabilities of the community. WSRB assigns each community a Protection Class of 1 through 10, where 1 indicates exemplary fire protection capabilities. The Protection Class evaluation process recognizes the efforts of communities to provide fire protection services for citizens and property owners. This is why insurance companies use Protection Classes to help establish fair premiums for fire insurance generally, offering lower premiums in communities with better protection ratings. By offering economic benefits for communities that invest in their firefighting services, the evaluation provides a real incentive for improving and maintaining fire protection. North Whidbey Fire and Rescues new classification took effect October 1, 2015.
