Southwestern Vermont Medical Center LNA Wins Statewide Recognition

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Deborah Yanke of the Women's and Children's Services Department at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center was presented with Vermont Department of Health’s Child Passenger Safety Healthcare Tech of the Year Award.

The award was presented at the Vermont Child Passenger Safety Annual Technician Update in September at the Howe Center in Rutland, Vt.

Vermont Child Passenger Safety Technicians provide hands-on education to parents and caregivers to make sure that their children are in the right seat for their age and size and that the seat is installed and being used correctly. Many child safety seats are used or installed incorrectly, even though parents and caregivers want to keep their children safe. Inspections by child passenger safety technicians provide caregivers with the knowledge and peace of mind to keep kids as safe as possible on every trip.

This year, eight technicians and fitting stations were recognized for their service to their communities. They represent volunteers and staff of fire departments, rescue squads, and sheriff departments statewide.
