Car Seat Safety


A car seat must be properly installed before an infant can be taken home from the hospital after birth. Car seats can be installed or checked most days at the Health Department through the Injury Prevention initiative. Recalled seats may be able to be replaced through Safe Kids. Call in advance to make sure someone trained will be available.
