Tashmoo Insurance hosted child car seat safety check on Saturday


On Saturday May 19, representatives of Tashmoo Insurance Agency and the Edgartown Police Department will host a car seat safety clinic at the insurance agency’s Edgartown office from 1 to 3 pm.

Police officers will be on hand to check that car seats are properly installed.

“If just one of the inspections we conduct could prevent a child from being seriously injured from an auto accident, then this clinic would be well worth it,” Joe Gervais, of Tashmoo Insurance Agency, said in a press release.

Additionally, the agency will offer parents a free comprehensive personal information and identification kit. The kit includes a questionnaire that corresponds to questions for the national missing children database, current photos of the child, a fingerprint chart, and information about DNA samples and scent articles.

Free kits are also available at Tashmoo Insurance Agency, at 517 State Road, in Vineyard Haven, or at 256A Edgartown–Vineyard Haven Road, in Edgartown.
