CCH hosts Car Fit Session April 6 & Driver Safety April 7

Columbus Community Hospital and AARP will host a Car Fit session April 6 at the Columbus Community Hospital main entrance from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Each 20-minute appointment provides an opportunity for drivers to: check how well their vehicle "fits," receive information and materials on area resources for enhancing driver safety, improve driver safety by being reassured the car is adjusted for the driver, discuss with trained technicians proper use of safety belts, air bags, and anti-lock brakes, learn how to manage the effects of aging on driving, and ensure drivers are doing all they can to increase their safety and that of others.

Appointments are required. All checks are done outside in the participant’s vehicle. Participants are asked to dress for the weather. Call 920-623-1276 to register.

A Driver Safety Program for drivers age 50 and over will be offered on behalf of AARP and CCH on April 7 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the hospital in the Diamond Room

Participants will learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, how to operate a vehicle safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment, and how to accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time.

Those completing the class may be eligible to receive an insurance discount or a discount on roadside assistance plans.

Pre-registration is required. Contact Chris DeLapp at 623-1276.

Cost is $15 for AARP members (AARP membership card required), $20 for non-members. All books and materials are provided by AARP.
Coffee and lunch will be provided.
