HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital getting ready to launch a new child passenger safety program.

The kickoff for the Buckle Up for Life education program is midday Thursday at the Livingston County EMS facility in Howell.

The hospital that’s part of University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor is among partners in the national program. Motor vehicle crashes are one of the leading causes of death for children, but many car seats are installed incorrectly.

Buckle Up for Life was created by Toyota and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 2004 to help keep children safe in vehicles. The program teaches parents and children about the proper use of car seats and seat belts and provides some with free car seats.
