If your child is ready to use a seat belt, ensure the seat belt fits correctly: The seat belt should lie across the upper thighs and be snug across the shoulder and chest. Remember that seat belts should never rest on the stomach area or across the face.

Fire Safety Focus:

Halloween safety
Pumpkins on the porch

Children dressed in costumes excitedly running door to door to trick-or-treat, festive decorations like glowing jack-o-lanterns, paper ghosts and dried cornstalks adorning front porches – these are some of the classic hallmarks of Halloween that make the holiday special for kids and adults alike.
Unfortunately, these Halloween symbols and activities can also present lurking fire risks that have the potential to become truly scary. But by planning ahead, you can help make this Halloween a fire-safe one. Taking simple fire safety precautions like keeping decorations far away from open flames and using battery-operated candles or glow-sticks in jack-o-lanterns can help ensure your holiday remains festive and fun!

The men and women of Leland Fire/Rescue are committed to your safety and well-being. If you have any questions or concerns that we may assist you with to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones please do not hesitate to call us at (910)371-2727.

Please help us increase fire safety awareness and spread the word, please share this and other Leland Fire/ Rescue Fire Safety Focus posts with your friends and family because...

For their safety, kids 8 to 12 years old should ride in a booster seat until they outgrow the size limits of their booster, or until they are big enough for the seat belt to fit them properly. A properly fitting seat belt means:

-- The shoulder belt lies snugly across the shoulder and chest, not crossing the neck or face.
-- The lap belt lies snugly across the upper thighs, not the stomach.

Make sure your child is buckled up properly on every trip and remember to keep them in the back seat at least through age 12. Learn more: https://www.nhtsa.gov/risky-driving/seat-belts#the-issue-tweens

House Introduces a Sweeping Booster Seat Safety Law to Protect Children in Car Crashes

"The proposed law would force the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to create mandatory tests for booster seats that mimic the forces of side-impact crashes. Currently, boosters only have to undergo crash tests that simulate a head-on collision.

For the first time, boosters would have to carry a prominent label warning that they should not be used for children who weigh less than 40 pounds or who are less than 4 years old. The law also would require labels on traditional car seats with built-in harnesses, warning parents not to transition their kids to boosters until they outgrow the harnessed seats. Boosters save lives by lifting children up so that adult seat belts fit properly. The built-in harnesses on traditional car seats are better at protecting a child’s body in a crash.

The new bill has the support of the American Academy of Pediatrics, prominent auto insurers, insurance industry groups and more than 10 consumer safety organizations." Read more -->>

The Booster Seat Safety Act was prompted by a ProPublica investigation and a subsequent congressional probe that found manufacturers had misled parents about the safety of booster seats and endangered children’s lives.

Chill? Or Chilling? Sure, he might look cozy, but truth is this kiddo will probably be TOO warm wearing his coat in a car seat. Bulky coats may leave the harness too loose. Why take the risk? Use that bulky coat as a blanket instead.

This is a great example of why you should NEVER leave your child in a hot car. Even when the temperatures outside are cooler, the temperatures inside the car can still reach dangerously high levels! Come see our #HotCars display inside the #SafetyCity tent at the #NCStateFair.

New research by Everytown for Gun Safety estimated that 5.4M children live in a home with at least one gun that is not securely stored. With regularity, children find these guns and unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else.
Shootings by children can be prevented with secure gun storage. #BeSMART for Kids: Store guns locked, unloaded and separate from ammunition.
