Is your child #SafeAndSnug?
Get the right fit and win!
May 5, 2017
Want the chance to win a $1,000 Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) for your child? Simply attend any one of the free SGI-sponsored child car seat clinics being offered across the province, and tag a friend on social media to attend one, too!
Join SGI's Safety Squad tomorrow at the Toys "R" Us parking lot in Regina from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., located at 730 Albert St., and learn how to keep your child #SafeAndSnug. At the clinic, trained car seats technicians will work with you to review the suitability of your child's car seat, ensure the proper fit and demonstrate correct installation.
"Children are our most valuable cargo," said Earl Cameron, Executive Vice-President of the Auto Fund. "That's why it's so important to ensure your child's car seat is the right size, and is adjusted and installed correctly."
In 2015, four children under the age of seven were injured in Saskatchewan due to being improperly restrained or not restrained at all. Additionally, 12 children under the age of seven were injured due to being secured by a seatbelt that may have been inappropriate (e.g., child too small for the seatbelt).
To enter the #SafeAndSnug contest, attend any car seat clinic this summer and tag a friend in a post or Tweet to attend one as well. Be sure to tag @SGIcommunity on Facebook, @SGIphotos on Instagram or mention @SGItweets or @SGIsafetysquad on Twitter, and include the #SafeAndSnug hashtag. A picture of your little bundle buckled up #SafeandSnug never hurts either!
Participants will be entered into a weekly draw to win one of three prizes: a vehicle seat protector (to go under your car/booster seat), a multi-use canopy cover or a plush bear. The grand prize includes a $1,000 Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) for your child. All prizes are courtesy of the Insurance Brokers Association of Saskatchewan.
The #SafeAndSnug contest runs until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2017.
Car seats are mandatory for children under seven years of age and less than 145 cm (4'9") in height and under 36 kg (80 lbs) in weight. These free car seat clinics are a great opportunity to make sure your little ones stay #SafeAndSnug.
Visit sgi.sk.ca/clinic for further contest details and upcoming car seat clinics in your area.
Media are invited to attend tomorrow's event between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., where members of the Safety Squad will be available to answer any questions and provide interviews.
