Fitzgerald Auto Malls installs 45,000th child safety seat
At its monthly Child Seat Inspection last week, Fitzgerald Auto Malls installed its 45,000th child safety seat since the program began in 1999. No other local volunteer program in the country has achieved that many child safety seat inspections.
WANADA member Jack Fitzgerald, CEO of Fitzgerald Auto Malls, started the program after learning the dangers of improperly installed child safety seats. As a local business owner, I am proud to have the opportunity to work with the great government and state organizations to promote public safety, Fitzgerald said. Montgomery County Police and Fire & Rescue Services have been involved in the program for 15 years.
Officials from the Montgomery County along with the state of Maryland were on hand at last weekês event at Fitzgerald Auto Malls to include Attorney General Doug Gansler. Today we celebrate a unique public-private partnership that has helped 45,000 children travel safer and given at least as many families greater peace of mind, said Gansler.Download Bulletin PDF
