Haddad Collision Center will be working with the Pittsfield Police Department and Safe Kids of Western MA to bring the car seat safety program to Berkshire County.

Mandi Summers, who coordinates the Safe Kids of Western MA program through Baystate Health in Springfield, said “We were able to help close to a dozen Berkshire County families with last year’s car seat safety check  – I’m really happy Haddad Collision Center offered to do it again.

Haddad Collision Center Manager, Matt Clark, first got involved with this event last year, when he had questions about the safe installation of his granddaughter’s car seat

“I just wasn’t confident that I had done it correctly”.  Matt went on to say “I figured if I was having trouble – and I’m in the business – other people might have the same trouble.  I was happy to be able to coordinate a Car Seat Safety Check with Safe Kids of Western Massachusetts – this way every family can be sure their child’s safe when in their car.”

The Car Seat Safety Check will be held in the parking lot that Haddad Collision Center shares with Haddad Pre-Owned at 25   West Housatonic Street, Pittsfield MA, on Saturday April 12th from 10am-2pm.  Volunteers from the Pittsfield Police Department, Safe Kids of Western MA and Haddad Collision Center will be on hand to inspect children’s car seats and ensure that they are installed correctly.  In the event of rain, the Car Seat Safety Check will be held inside Haddad Collision Center.  Families will need to bring:

  • the car seat
  • the car it is usually in
  • the child that uses it

The event is free and no appointment is necessary.   See photos from last year on Haddad Collision Center’s Facebook Page
