Fitzgerald Dealerships Participate in National Child Passenger Safety Week
ROCKVILLE, MD – September 12, 2012 The 2012 National Child Passenger Safety Week falls on September 16-22 and serves as another reminder for parents and caregivers to keep America’s children safe. During this time, free car seat inspection stations will be set up across the country to help ensure that children are getting the best protection and are in the correct child seat for their size and age. The State Child Safety Seat Program is highlighting these local events to emphasize the importance of proper child passenger safety.
Fitzgerald Auto Malls has always worked to keep children safe. In 1999, Jack Fitzgerald, CEO and founder, started the Fitzgerald Child Car Seat Inspection Program after learning about the dangers of improperly installed child safety seats. For over 13 years, Fitzgerald Auto Malls works to prevent injuries and save lives of children through their monthly child safety seat inspections.
As of June 2012, Fitzgerald Auto Malls has installed and inspected over 42,000 child safety seats—the single largest number of inspections by a dealership group in the United States. It is the first private organization to achieve this record number of inspections within a single program. “We are committed to increasing the number of lives saved through properly installed child safety seats. We are very proud of this accomplishment and we are proud to support the communities we serve,” said Jack Fitzgerald.
This commitment to child safety is just one of many ways Fitzgerald Auto Mall sets themselves apart from other dealers in the area. Fitz Mall strongly believes in serving the communities by protecting children and reducing the number of injuries and fatalities that occur as a result of child safety seat misuse.
Fitzgerald Auto Malls is hosting their regularly scheduled child safety seat inspections on Thursday, September 20th in Rockville, MD and on Friday, September 21st in Annapolis, MD.
Monthly events are held at the White Flint Rockville dealership on Nicholson Lane, on the third Thursday of every month.
