Car Seat Safety

Did you know 3 out of 4 car seats are used incorrectly? Could yours be one of them? We want to ensure that children travel safely in cars at all times! Installing a car seat for younger children and babies can often be a challenge. Our trained Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) can help ensure that your car seat is properly installed so your children get from point A to point B as safely as possible. We offer individual Car Seat Checks as well as Group Car Seat Safety Classes - here's what to expect from our CPST:

 

  • Ensure that your car seat is appropriate for your child’s age, and size, plus review factors affecting proper use.

  • Review the car seat instructions and the vehicle owner’s manual to ensure that both are being followed correctly. (Remember to bring the vehicle owner’s manual with you.)

  • Ensure that an appropriate seating position in the vehicle is being used.

  • Check the car seat for recalls, visible damage and an expiration date.

  • Assistance with installing the car seat(s) correctly using either the seat belt or LATCH system.

  • Assistance with properly buckled children.

  • Discussion on the next steps for each child, such as when to graduate to the next type of car seat.
