Car seat and child safety seat inspections
73 percent of child passenger restraints are used incorrectly
Every year, thousands of children are tragically injured or killed in vehicle
crashes. In fact, it is the leading cause of death for children ages one
to 13. A properly installed car seat or child restraint can help prevent
a tragedy. Campbell County Health's
Emergency Medical Services staff perform free car seat checks through Safe Kids Campbell County.
Inspections take around 30 minutes and are performed by nationally certified
Child Passenger Safety Technicians. Technicians will train parents and
caregivers to install and adjust their car seats properly. Replacement
seats may be available for a contribution. Bring your child and the owner's
manuals for your vehicle and your car seat.
Car seat and child safety seat inspections are held on Wednesdays by appointment
at the Emergency Medical Services Base, 502 Stocktrail Ave. Appointment
required. Call 307.688.SAFE (7233) to schedule. Replacement car seats
are available for a $30 contribution.
