Noyes Health Receives Special Recognition for 10 Year Participation in Child Passenger Safety Program!
Wednesday, September 17, 2014
In celebration of the ten year anniversary of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Child Passenger Safety Program in Livingston County, Noyes Health System received an award for being an active partner from the start-up. Noyes Health was recognized by Cornell Cooperative Extension and Senator Young for its ten years of “Dedication to the Safety of Future Generations”, at a luncheon on September 15th at the Livingston County Highway Department offices.
“Noyes Health First Steps Program has been the “Car Seat Fit Station” for all program participants in need of a car seat for their newborn baby for the past decade. An average of forty to fifty car seats have been provided annually with car seat installation, including safety education for pregnant women in need”, said Patty Piper, Director of Community Outreach Services for Noyes Health.
Noyes Health also hosts the Annual Livingston County Child Car Seat Safety Checkpoint each year during Child Passenger Safety Week in September. Noyes Health wants to thank the other active partners that make this program such a success: Cornell Cooperative Extension, Livingston County Sheriff Tom Dougherty and the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department, Bob and Sue Mills, community volunteers for the program for past ten year and the New York State Police Department.
And a special thanks to June Webster and Amber Pellicane from the Cornell Cooperative Extension
Traffic Safety Education Program for their dedication to this important community outreach program.
