Our vision for the Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Program in Massachusetts during the remainder of FFY 2011 and through FFY 2012 is as follows:
  • 100% of all grant-funded activities, including fitting stations and checkup events, will be posted on the HSD Website;
  • 100% of grantees will receive support from HSD in their efforts to notify media outlets of their grant-funded activities;
  • 100% of grantees will post all grant-funded activities on their organization's website;
  • 100% of the people in need of services will receive the necessary information, equipment and assistance at no cost;
  • 100% of the seats currently in stock at our partner organizations will be distributed before their expiration date to people in need;
  • Current technicians will be recertified at a rate of 52% to match the expected national average;
  • Handcards will be printed and disseminated to all police departments, fire departments, hospitals, grantees and certified technicians and instructors by mail and at the annual conference and all upcoming training courses;
  • A printable version of the handcard will be posted on the HSD Website;
  • HSD will work with the other NHTSA Region 1 States to produce a CPS Video; and
  • Nine CPS training courses will be conducted through the MPTC, as follows: CPS Technician (2); CPS Technician Renewal (4); CPS Update (2); and Special Needs (1).
