Mobile Safety Center
Our van sells child safety products similar to those available in the Safety Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. In addition, our health educators teach families about the importance of child safety and the proper use of the products we carry. All of our items are sold at cost.
What safety products does the van carry?
A sampling of the items the van stocks:
- Bike helmets
- All types of car seats, from infant to booster seats
- Carbon monoxide and smoke alarms
- Home safety and childproofing devices
Where does the van go?
The Mobile Safety Center travels throughout the Philadelphia metropolitan area and southern New Jersey, attending community events and visiting CHOP Specialty Care Center. Please check the schedule of upcoming events to find out where the van will be next.
How to schedule a visit?
If you are interested in having the van come to an event hosted by your organization, please submit your request two months in advance or as soon as you have a date established. For most events, the van stays at least three hours.
Please contact us at SafetyVan@email.chop.edu for more information or to schedule a visit to your community event.
Note: The purpose of the Mobile Safety Center is to keep parents and caregivers aware of current injury prevention information. It is not an interactive teaching activity/facility for children. Please keep that in mind as you plan your event.
