With small passengers come big responsibilities

Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014 — An appropriate and correctly installed child passenger safety seat may be the one thing that makes the difference between life and death for a child involved in a traffic collision. In 2012, 45 percent of all California children younger than 8 years who were killed in a collision were not properly restrained. That total reflects a significant increase from the previous year.

To help raise awareness of the importance of these lifesaving devices for children, the California Highway Patrol will observe National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 14 — 20. Throughout the week, CHP offices will be conducting child safety seat events statewide.

“Protecting a child is a parent’s primary responsibility,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “No child should die in a collision or suffer serious injury because they were not properly restrained. As a parent or guardian, a child’s survival may depend on you.”

Drug Take Back program

Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014 — From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, the Lassen County Sheriff’s Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public another opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your medications for disposal to the Sheriff’s Office at 1415 Sheriff Cady Lane, Susanville. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.

Mark Baird, leader of Jefferson Declaration Committee, was the keynote speaker, and Terry Rapoza, of Redding, served as the master of ceremonies.
