Ohio Buckles Buckeyes Car Seat Program  

Ohio Buckles Buckeyes (OBB) program at Hancock Public Health provides child safety seats and booster seats to eligible, low-income families in Hancock County.

 

 

According to the Ohio Department of Health:

 

  • Motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death for children. But many of these deaths can be prevented with the appropriate car seats, booster seats and seat belts.

  • Car seat use reduces the risk of death to infants younger than age 1 by 71% and to toddlers 1 to 4-years-old by 54% in passenger vehicles.

  • Booster seat use reduces the risk of serious injury by 45% for children 4-8 years old when compared with seat belt use alone.
