Dawna Insua is a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. Dawna is available by appointment for one-on-one personalized instruction on how to properly use your child’s car seat. CPS technicians and instructors put their knowledge to work by conducting child safety seat checks, where parents and caregivers receive hands-on assistance for proper use of child restraint systems and safety belts. They all have one thing in common: they care deeply about kids and want to make sure they’re safe. Service includes initial carseat installation for new baby and practice with mock infant for belt security and transitional car seat changes.
