The schedule lasts about 45 minutes. For reservations, please call 808-527-2588.
In Hawaii, children under the age of 4 are required to ride in a child seat. Children 4-7 years old need to ride in a child or booster seat.
Farmers Insurance Hawaii will donate $ 5,000 to the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children’s Child Passenger Safety Program to make roads in Honolulu safer.
This money will make it easier for you to use the community’s child seat safety check service. We also provide child seats for families in financial distress and children with special medical needs.
With the support of Farmers Insurance Hawaii, this program helped more than 200 families check direct and virtual child seats in 2020.
Melanie Joseph, Marketing Manager at Farmers Insurance Hawaii, said: “We are proud to support the Kapiolani Medical Center’s Child Passenger Safety Program, which will help save lives and make the city of Hawaii safer.”
If you are unable to attend the virtual session on May 8th, the Kapiolani Medical Center will check your virtual child seat on Wednesday by appointment. Families can sign up for a 30-45 minute video conference with a certified child seat safety engineer to assist in the proper use and installation of the child seat.
This free virtual event is coordinated by Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, Hawaii Department of Transportation, Keiki Injury Prevention Union, and Farmers Insurance Hawaii.
