Car Seat Checks

Car Seat Fitting Station   

Motor vehicle crashes are the number one killer of children between the ages of 3 yrs. and 13 yrs. of age. Add to that that over 90% of car seats are improperly installed or improperly used.

This interactive program allows parents and caregivers the chance to learn how to correctly use their car seats and receive other important safety information about children and vehicles. Our nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians perform the 30-minute car seat safety inspections/check, helping parents and caregivers ensure their precious cargo's safety while in the vehicle.

 Checks are by appointment only.

Safe Landings℠ 

New and expectant parents have their hands full. There is a lot to learn and a lot of preparation to ensure the infant's safety.

The CTEMS Safe Landings Program helps these families prepare their homes, vehicles, and nurseries to safeguard their babies against known safety hazards.

This educational program brings a specially trained Emergency Medical Technician or Paramedic to your home for a four-hour presentation/class. The visit consists of four components.

  1. Certification in CPR for the parents and up to eight other people (family members, friends, caregivers, neighbors)                                                                                                               
  2. The technician will go through the house with the parents to identify safety hazards and areas needing attention for childproofing the home.                                                           
  3. Safe sleep practice will be reviewed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
  4. A car seat check will be performed to ensure knowledge of safe installation and use in the vehicle use.

Some insurance companies will reimburse the cost of the program.

This program is available for residents of the counties of Allegheny, Butler, Beaver, and Lawrence.

Wellness's ℠                  

Now elderly and chronically ill adults with non-acute medical needs whose health does not require hospitalization can have a healthcare professional provide affordable, non-clinical, in-home support as often as three times a week.

During a one-hour visit to a household, a CTEMS technician, in cooperation with that individual's primary care physician, will help make sure that the patient's vital signs are recorded and that their medications are being taken as prescribed.

The CTEMS technician can also assist with questions concerning drugs and treatments, refer the patient to social service organizations, assist them in setting up appointments, help to make transportation arrangements, and conduct home safety checks for trip-and-fall hazards.

The Community Wellness Check program is being carried out in partnership with the United Way 2-1-1 referral service, which includes more than 50 human service agencies operating in Butler County.  The Life Butler and Beaver programs, designed to assist those 55 years and older with various services, is also a partner in the Community Wellness Check program. 

Future extensions of the program currently under consideration include monitoring blood glucose levels, performing ECGs, and drawing blood for lab work.

This program is open to anyone within a 30-mile radius of Cranberry Township.  Call the station at 724-776-4480 ext: 1902 or email communityparamedicine@ctems51.org for more information.
