Westfield police and fire departments received an early holiday present from global safety design and manufacturer IMMI on Dec. 2, 10 donated children’s seats. The IMMI GO hybrid car seats will help easily and safely transport children when needed in an emergency.
The Westfield-based company’s IMMI GO seat is popular with Uber’s uberFAMILY car service in cities like New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Uber drivers use the IMMI GO seat to help families keep their children safer in their vehicles, and to eliminate the inconvenience and hassle of lugging a heavy, bulky car seat with them every time they need to travel. Officials said the IMMI GO seat is designed to be small, portable and easy to install. Children can be quickly secured in the GO, and when not in use, the lightweight car seat folds down to take up minimal room in the trunk.
Officials said the police and fire departments will be first to pilot the municipal use of the GO.
“We are thrilled to donate these IMMI GOs to Westfield emergency responders,” stated IMMI president Tom Anthony. “While you never want a child to be in an emergency situation, if they are, you want them to be safe in a vehicle. The IMMI GO seat is the perfect solution. The child has the added safety they need, and police have a seat that takes up little room, is fast to install, and very easy to use.”
The IMMI GO seat also is available to municipalities and the general public at www.immigoseat.com.
