Safe Ride 4 Kids was founded by Greg Durocher — a former fireman of 18 years, paramedic of 10 years and Child Passenger Safety Technician Instructor since 2001 — along with his wife, Amie — also a Child Passenger Safety Technician. Together they have more than 25 years of car seat safety experience. They found our innovative but relatively undiscovered products that solved some challenges many parents face.
Safe Ride 4 Kids became the #1 reseller/distributor (not the manufacturer) and your primary education source of the Tummy Shield and RideSafer Travel Vest. We also offer driving during pregnancy and car seat safety information and tips.
You see, we’ve been where you are — looking for solutions to various challenges of keeping our babies safe while driving and, in the case of moms-to-be, keeping yourself safe and comfortable too.
While the Tummy Shield was not available during any of our pregnancies, had it been Amie and Stephanie would have jumped at the chance to sit in the car more comfortably and safely. Amie and Greg were looking at buying a new car during their third pregnancy because their car with bucket seats in the back wouldn’t fit three child restraints across, when a CPST Instructor friend reminded them of the RideSafer® Travel Vest. It was a much less expensive solution, though they did eventually buy a new bigger car with four-wheel drive for the snows of Colorado. Amie and Greg found the RideSafer to be the perfect solution to traveling with kids and sending the kids in friends’ cars without having to move car seats around.
Greg and Amie met Jeff and Stephanie four years prior to going into business together. They met doing volunteer work in an environment which is not only physically demanding but is 100% focused on serving and supporting others during an exceptionally, emotionally challenging time in their lives. In other words, the four of us believe in serving others as a personal core value.
