ATLANTA (WRDW/WAGT) - Several local counties were selected to receive Georgia Department of Public Health mini-grants to purchase and distribute child safety car seats.

Funding is provided by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.

The Department of Public Health said education, car seats and booster seats provided since 2007 through the program prevented serious injury or death and has saved more than 425 children involved in crashes.

CSRA counties selected for the funds include Burke, Columbia, Emanuel, Glascock, Hancock, Jefferson, Jenkins, Taliaferro, Warren and Washington.
