I am a pediatric nurse in a private office. I have to call for ambulance transport every few weeks and I always ask if they need the child’s carseat. They usually put them in the parents lap which is not safe. This would be fantastic

This needs action! As the mom of 2 children and one who needed to be in an ambulance at birth to be transported to a helicopter, I never knew about this until now. I couldn’t imagine what would happen if my child were in that ambulance and it crashed.

I’m very surprised to learn that there is no law that requires a child to be strapped/ restrained SAFELY in an ambulance. Look at that number “5,000 AMBULANCE and fire vehicle crashes/year” how many of those involved in crashes are possibly transporting children to the hospital?!

I hope a change is made very soon!

About time that action is being taken on this. This deficiency has been neglected for too long. Kudos to you for getting the ball rolling.

Are children a Commodity that just don’t matter?? Children are our heart and soul! They do matter! We need Child safety restraint devices that meet all national safety standards in ER Transport Vehicles!

Thank you, ANSR for Kids for recognizing and doing something about this missing link in our emergency care system. It is amazing to learn that there is no law requiring that infants and toddlers be restrained in the back of an ambulance, and I’m sure this is new information to so many other concerned care-givers. I hope our President and his administration take the necessary steps to insure the safety of these babies at a time when their health and/or well-being is already in a compromised state. I urge every mom, dad, and grandparent to sign this petition and stand up for the safe transport of any “little one” they love.
