Child Passenger Safety Centralized Leadership

Please welcome Carma McKinnon as the statewide CPS Centralized Leadership coordinator!! Carma has been a CPST for 20 years and a CPST Instructor for 15 years, recently retired from St. Luke’s Magic Valley, and moved to Carmen, Idaho (slightly north of Salmon). Centralized leadership was a strong recommendation provided the Office of Highway Safety almost three years ago. Not all changes will happen immediately, but over time the ultimate goal is to develop a program that is consistent statewide. Next to keeping children safe and parents/caregivers and law enforcement personnel educated, CPS technician and instructor training and recertification is a high priority.

The new grant process will be slightly different. Yes, an application is needed (the program is federally-funded) however all sub-grantees will be reimbursed directly from the Office of Highway Safety.

Carma will reach out to all the organizations and technicians that continue child passenger safety in their communities. We seek everyone’s ideas how to strengthen the program in your area and also statewide.

To contact Carma, call (208) 742-1683 or (208) 308-8075.
