Nissan's Snug Kids™ Celebrates A Decade Of Helping Secure The Safety Of Children

Also during the first week of October, Nissan will host a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) course at its training center in Cool Springs, Tenn., for area first responders. During the four-day course, firefighters and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) will learn about crash dynamics, injury prevention strategies, and child-restraint selection and installation. Participants who complete the training will receive national certification and will be able to offer seat-check days to residents in their own communities.

During the past 10 years, Nissan's safety engineers have dedicated thousands of hours to evaluating hundreds of child-restraint systems by installing them in the rear seats of Nissan and Infiniti products. The results are published in a comprehensive child safety seat fit guide for parents and caregivers. Nissan's process for evaluating the compatibility of child-restraints in vehicles has been recognized as an industry leader and in 2011, the automaker announced its planned participation in the Vehicle-CRS Fit Program, a future initiative proposed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Much like Snug Kids™, NHTSA's program would be aimed at helping consumers choose child-restraint systems that properly fit their vehicles and would encourage other vehicle manufacturers to voluntarily assess and recommend at least three current child-restraint models in each category (rear-facing, front-facing and booster) for use in current vehicle models. The agency would then publish the listings at www.safercar.gov.
