Everett Resolution Presented at Infant Safe Sleep Event in Williamsport
11/20/2015
WILLIAMSPORTHouse Resolution 585 which declares November as Infant Safe Sleep Month in Pennsylvania was presented at a proclamation event in Williamsport Friday according to its author, Rep. Garth Everett (R-Lycoming/Union).

“There has been a continuous effort to raise public awareness of the dangers of having infants in unsafe sleeping environments which, sadly, has resulted in a number of needless deaths across the nation,” said Everett. “I am honored to work with Lycoming County Coroner Charles Kiessling and many others, and this event certainly was a great aid in getting the word out to prevent these tragic deaths.”

The Safe Sleep Proclamation event took place at the Susquehanna Health Life Center which is housed at the Williamsport YWCA. Among those participating were Kiessling, Loribeth Ryder of Susquehanna Health Birthplace, Juliann Gombosi of Home Care Maternal Child Care Nurses and Susquehanna Health pediatrician, Dr. Russell Gombosi.

During the event, a presentation of infant safe sleep instructions was made along with a demonstration of how to properly place an infant in a car seat. There were handouts for those in attendance, and an example of the contract mothers of infants sign at the hospital related to safe sleep conditions.

Kiessling explained that there was a rise in infant deaths in the nation due to unsafe sleeping conditions, thus the continuing need to continue the effort to educate parents, grandparents and caregivers in these techniques.

Everett has had the support of the full House in this effort since 2010.
