WINTER 2008

Precious Cargo
In a Small, Black Zippered Bag
Hope and stalwart heart were not to prevail,
Upon this chill winter's morn,
Over the rush of traffic, a mother's plaintive wail,
For Precious Cargo lay upon the road, tattered and torn,
A small child's blanket covered in blood and glass,
Amid debris scattered and strewn,
The ashen, wide eyed faces of other drivers' as they pass,
For Precious Cargo lay upon the road, shattered and hewn,
In the morn's rush, sensibility went horribly astray,
With the child restraint she would not be pained
Those who were not driving fast enough had best make way,
And now Precious Cargo lay upon the road,
battered and stained
The broad shoulders of hardened troopers begin to sag
As the coroner's vehicle passes by, siren silent, windows dark,
Precious Cargo now lay in a small, black zippered bag,
As they busy their minds with measurements and
photos from mark to mark.

Community Education
OPTION 1: Two-hour check up event with at least one other CPS Technician at which you serve families using
any standardized checklist to provide documentation, if needed.
OPTION 2: Provide at least four hours of community education. Examples include presenting to parents, educators, kids, organizations (PTAs, law enforcement). These are presentations to non-CPSTs. You
are welcome to combine smaller events for the requirement.
Categories of CEUs (CEUs are self-certified and are subject to random auditing)
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
In-person Session/Workshop (maximum 6 CEUs)
Observing a CPS Certification or Renewal Course (max. 3 CEUs)
Teleconferences (max. 5 CEUs)
Online/Web sessions (max. 5 CEUs)
Newsletters/Manuals/Journals (max. 3 CEUs)
Technicians and instructors may mix and match categories to meet the six required hours of continuing education. All categories of CEUs must meet the content requirements of improving CPS technical knowledge such as LATCH, a child restraint manufacturer workshop or CPS technical update. Non-technical CPS sessions, such as how to get funding or run an inspection station, do not
qualify.
Check up events, while valuable, do not qualify for CEUs, but do meet Option #1 of the Community Education Requirement.
Can I Get All 6 CEUs From My Office?
You don’t even have to leave your office to earn credit for your 6 CEUs

Quick Thoughts To Consider
Boosters With Rigid LATCH
Clek Olli
The Indy Plus booster by Jane USA is used with the rigid LATCH attachments
and the shoulder-lap belt to restrain the child. The Clek can be used either with
LATCH and the lap/shoulder belt or without LATCH to hold the booster in
place. The weight limits for lower LATCH bars "should" not apply when the
bars are only being used to hold the booster itself, not the child in a restraint.
The booster remains attached in the vehicle at all times -- no possibility of a
flying missile. This small discrepancy in the requirements for boosters and
weights of anchors are wrinkles that SRN and others are trying to sort out with
NHTSA and vehicle manufacturers. Deborah Stewart/SAFE RIDE NEWS

FACT OR FICTION: Using slip guard with a child safety seat will assist in obtaining a tight installation.
I have recently read in the SafeRide News that tech certification classes are no longer advocating the use of slip guard/shelf
liner for the installation of car seats. Our coalition has been using this tool, as was taught in our certification class 2 years ago,
to get proper tightness for installation on leather seats. Does anyone have thoughts regarding this; especially how to get the
proper tightness on "slippery" seats? Thank you for your input! Katie Riitters, CPS Technician Morrison County, MN
FICTION - Slip guard was discussed in the previous curriculum and is listed on page 426 in the Appendix of the revised curriculum as a tool to have available at a CPS Inspection Station. The use of slip guard was never intended for use to assist in
providing a tight installation. Slip guard only assists with protecting a vehicle seat (leather). If you feel you need an aide to
assist in providing a secure installation, there is a problem with the installation. Using your weight as leverage may provide the
force you need to get the tight installation necessary for a child safety seat. Another seating location may also be an option. By
informing the parent/caregiver that the slip guard is an aide to assist with tight installation you are giving the parent/caregiver
the illusion that their installation is correct when just the opposite is true.

Dorel Juvenile Group Announces a Voluntary Safety Recall for Certain Models of the Cosco® Touriva®
Columbus, IN December 17, 2007- Dorel Juvenile Group (DJG) is announcing a voluntary safety recall for certain Cosco®
Touriva® child restraints manufactured from September 28, 2004 through September 20, 2007. There is a potential for the
elastic straps that secure the fabric pad to the child restraint shell to come loose and become accessible to the child. The child
could then loop the elastic strap around portions of his or her body. There have been no serious injuries reported.
Model numbers affected are:
Cosco® Touriva: 22100TTD, 22100FSM, 22100TIP, 22111FSM, 22130WAL, 93100FSM, 93111FSM
Cosco Regal RideTM: 22139MON
DJG will contact all registered owners and at the same time will provide them with a free repair kit.
Parents may continue to use the child restraint as directed in their instruction manual.

COLOR PICTORIAL AVAILABLE
The Color Pictorial for 2007 is available through SafetyBeltSafe U.S.A. This tool includes color photos of all of the
safety seats back into the 1980’s, organized by type of seat. This enables those identifying safety seats to match
seats without names with photos and to learn the time period that the model was produced.
Next, users can go to the Child Restraint Manufacturers’ Instructions with Summary Sheets to find the exact instructions. Inclusion in either collection does not mean that the seat might not be ready for “retirement” but it enables the user to protect the child adequately for the ride home if another product is not available. It also makes it
clear that the seat is “too old” if the date label is missing, but the production range shows it isn’t a current product.

Guardian Safety Seat for Ambulance Use
Serenity Safety Products, a firm with five employees that launched in November 2006, unveiled the
seat at a National Truck Equipment Association meeting in Michigan in September. The seat should
be in its first ambulances in January, said Kurt Hinkle, the company's president and chief executive
officer. Hinkle is a former Phoenix Fire Department paramedic and firefighter. While he couldn't
quantify the number of times it happened, he said it was a regular occurrence that uninjured toddlers
or infants would need a ride in an ambulance with their injured parent or guardian, or in a separate
ambulance.
The projected retail price is about $4,500, said Dan Sjoquist, the company's chief financial officer
and vice president of operations. Installing the seat will add to the $125,000 cost of an ambulance.
The seat is likely to reduce liability for both municipal and private ambulance providers, Hinkle
said, because protection is being added for a rider that wasn't available before.
The seat, the Guardian Safety Seat, is actually multiple seats in one. It works as an ambulance attendant seat. Folding down the seat's center back cushion, the toddler seat is revealed. Children weighing between 23-85 pounds can use the seat, and are secured in a five point restraint system. The infant seat is revealed by folding down a panel behind the center back cushion, removing the seat bottom cushion and then releasing a safety bar, according
to a company brochure. Infants weighing between five and 22 pounds can then be secured in a cradle with a padded headrest by
a five point restraint system. The cradle is hidden under the seat cushions.
Serenity Safety products collaborated with students and professors in the College of Design at Arizona State University and a
Tempe-based mechanical engineering firm called ESG Engineering in the design and engineering of the seat, Hinkle said.
