Safe Travel For All Children

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and the Occupant Protection Resource Center (OPRC) sponsored the Safe Travel for All Children (STAC) Transporting Children with Special Health Care Needs training course on June 24-25, 2019 in St. Petersburg, Florida. The course provides additional training for child passenger safety (CPS) technicians and instructors interested in learning more about transporting children with special healthcare needs. The two-day course included classroom presentations, hands-on installation of specialized restraints and working directly with children and families. Petra Vybiralova, Safe Kids supervisor at John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, completed training to become a certified STAC instructor and is excited to share her expertise with CPS technicians and instructors throughout Florida.
