KOHL CHILDREN’S MUSEUM JOINS FORCES WITH THE ILLINOIS TOLLWAY AND ILLINOIS STATE POLICE FOR A FREE “KIDS IDENTIFICATION AND SAFETY SEAT” EVENT ON SATURDAY, JULY 6, 2013
 
Event to Include Interactive Activities, a Special Appearance by the Illinois Snow Plow Truck and Discounted Admissions to the Museum 
 

Kohl Children’s Museum, the Illinois Tollway and Illinois State Police District 15 are teaming up to host a free “Kids Identification and Safety Seat” (K.I.S.S.) event Saturday, July 6, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Kohl Children’s Museum parking lot. The K.I.S.S. event strives to educate parents and caregivers on important safety issues for their children by providing safety seat inspections and child identification cards for children age 3 and older. The Illinois Tollway will also bring a snow plow for children to climb aboard and explore in a safe and supervised environment.
 
For easiest access, participants should enter using the Museum’s bus entrance, located at the south side of the Museum on West Lake Avenue.  Event attendees will also receive a $2 off special discount on admission to the Museum after attending the event.
 
“The safety of our patrons and their families is of the utmost importance to us here at the Museum,” said Kohl Children’s Museum President and CEO Sheridan Turner. “Suprisingly, 80% of safety seats in Illinois are improperly installed. As all of our patrons should be using these seats, we feel an overwhelming responsibility to help educate our local community in partnership with the Illinois Tollway and State Police District 15.”
 
Safety Seat Inspections- Parents and caregivers should bring child safety seats, children and the vehicle in which the child safety seats will be installed. Information on recalls and recall detection, correct positioning, correct sizing to protect the child most effectively, plus additional safety information and resources will be offered at the event.
 
Child Identification Cards- Specially trained professionals will take kids’ photographs and fingerprints and gather vital information to include on three personal identification cards to be used by parents and  law enforcement in the event of an emergency.

  1. I always look forward to going out. A good tip would be to look out for those places with interesting concepts. I suspect the enjoyment of a venue is, in large part, a function of the performance at hand.
