Seat Belts Save Lives

sign saying buckle up next million milesA 101 Days of Summer Safety message that never gets old - especially since our firefighters and paramedics still respond to vehicle crashes in which people are seriously injured, or worse, because they are not wearing their seat belts.

Seat Belts Save Lives. No brainer, right? Not to one in every seven drivers who still don't wear their seat belts. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), automotive accidents are the number one cause of death in the U.S. among people aged 5 to 34. Furthermore, the CDC says that drivers who buckle their seat belts cut their chances in half of being seriously injured or killed in a crash.
