Catch Up on Demand

This is the place where CPS state coordinators can catch up on news and learn about ideas shared during meetings with members of the National Child Passenger Safety Board. Watch video recordings of these meetings and make plans to join us in the future. You’ve heard it said: Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. Our vision — like yours — is to save lives and prevent injuries by promoting child passenger safety through education, mentorship, engagement and innovation.
