MILWAUKEE (3/18/2010) - In an effort to better serve families in Milwaukee's urban communities, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin partnered with Bell Ambulance to open a new booster and car seat clinic location near downtown.
"There were very few permanent fitting sites serving the urban/downtown population," said Deena Liska, motor vehicle safety educator, Children's Health Education Center. "Families who attend the Wauwatosa clinic said a location closer to this area would be welcomed."
Santanna Dillon was among the first to have her child's infant carrier installed at the new clinic location. "I like that it's convenient to where I live. With the price of gas, I don't like to drive far if I don't have to."
Schedule a free appointment at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Booster and Car Seat Clinic. A trained technician will help you to install your child's car seat and answer questions. Call (414) 607-5280 to schedule an appointment.
Children's Hospital's Booster and Car Seat Clinic is at two locations:
Downtown (new location)
1647 N. Fourth St., Milwaukee
Fleet Management Building
10320 Watertown Plank Road, Wauwatosa, Wis.
