Child Passenger Safety Web Resources Library

Have you ever been in a situation where you wished you had child passenger safety (CPS) resources in other languages?

What about CPS in other vehicles (e.g. school bus; ambulance)? Or in other areas of CPS; such as special needs? Wouldn’t you like to have this information available in a centralized location?

The National Child Passenger Safety Board’s Diversity Committee recognizes this need and we want to help. Please see below for the start of a comprehensive CPS Resource Library.  The CPS Resource Library is catered to your needs based on information we received from you.  Below you will find links to printed CPS materials in different languages, webinars on CPS in other vehicles, and resources on Special Needs Transportation.

The development of the Resource Library will be an ongoing initiative.  We encourage you to submit relevant resources that you use within your community to educate diverse populations. Below is a link to upload your resource/s. Resources submitted will be reviewed by the NCPSB Diversity committee for best practice recommendations.
