St. John Ambulance FREE Car Seat Installation Clinic

Thursday, April 22, 2010

May 1, 2010 - It is estimated that over 75% of child deaths and injuries due to motor vehicle collisions could be prevented with the proper installation and use of car seats. Only one in ten car seats are properly installed which is why the mission of St. John Ambulance Car Seat Technicians is to promote and provide awareness, education, and skill building related to child seat safety in Barrie Simcoe and Muskoka Regions.

DATE: May 1, 2010
TIME: 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
LOCATION: LimoTime, 159 Anne St. S - Unit D, Barrie (Look for the St. John Ambulance Car Seat Clinic signs)


  • Clinics are First Come/First Served.
  • Free BBQ on site courtesy of LimoTime
  • B101 on site with live promotion
  • It takes approximately ½ hour per seat, and there may be a wait to have your car seat checked. Therefore you may want to bring snacks and drinks for your child(ren).
  • Please make sure you bring the owner’s manual for your car, the car seat manual and the child if possible. Try to have your seat installed before arriving, and be ready to assist our volunteer technicians in the inspection process.
  • If the seat is a Forward Facing Seat, please have your anchor bolt already installed; we do not install anchor bolts.
  • Donations are welcomed.

This free event includes educating parents about ongoing care and upkeep on car seats and proper installation, taking the technicians about 1/2 hour with each vehicle. All St. John Ambulance car seat technicians are nationally certified and trained to the latest safety regulations.
