Education and Outreach

Through education, advocacy, and targeted outreach efforts, Safer seeks to reduce the incidence of death and injury for children in motor vehicle crashes. Safer is the State's sole source organization administering the NHTSA National Child Passenger Safety Certification Training Program.  Additionally, Safer conducts inspection events to educate parents and caregivers on the correct selection and use of their car seats and booster seats.  Child safety seat inspection events, including clinics and fitting stations, are held several times each month in various locations throughout the State.  Safer has established eight permanent fitting stations as consistent resource for families. 

In order to reach some of the most vulnerable children in New Mexico, Safer coordinates and manages a child safety seat distribution program.  With the support of hospitals and healthcare clinics, low-income families are provided child safety seats and instruction on their proper use.  Several of these sites serve primarily Spanish-speaking populations.  All distribution sites receive educational resources from the IPRC throughout the year. Besides, we try to increase road safety awareness on the internet via social and email marketing.
