SAFE Educational Activities

Only 84% of children age 5-9 (average booster seat age), are buckling up. For this reason, KTSRO developed Booster to Belts as a fun and interactive way to encourage children in kindergarten through 3rd grade to learn the importance of buckling up and using a booster seat.

KTSRO is offering a $150 speaker reimbursement opportunity for schools and community organizations who complete Booster to Belts. For complete details, read the Booster to Belts Guide. If you are interested in applying to do the presentation, please complete the Application below.
