Safe Kids Campbell County Events

Child Safety Seat Check

Safe Kids Campbell County hosts a child safety seat check event on Saturday, April 25 from 10 am-2 pm at the Campbell County Public Health parking lot, 2301 W. 4-J Road in Gillette.

At this event, residents can have a child passenger safety technician check their child’s booster seat or car seat to make sure it is up to date and installed properly with no recalls. Participants are asked to bring the child, their current car seat and the vehicle that they normally travel in for the check. Inspection time is around 30 minutes. Replacement car seats are available for a $30 contribution.

Also at the event:

  • Drug Take Back: Campbell County Sheriff's Office will host a drug take back. This is a great way for you to safely dispose of expired and unused prescription and over-the-counter medications. Can’t make it to the Drug Take Back? Drop your unused or unneeded prescriptions inside the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office or the Gillette Police Department’s Drug Drop Box at anytime, all year.

Safe Kids Campbell County provides our community with free car seat checks and much more to help educate our children on preventing accidental injuries. For more information, contact Safe Kids Campbell County at 307-688-SAFE (7233) or visit www.cchwyo.org/safekids.

Guidelines issued by the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2011 recommend that kids use a booster seat until they are at least 4’9” tall (57 inches) and weigh between 80 and 100 pounds. Children seated in a booster seat in the back seat of the car are 45% less likely to be injured in a crash than children using a seat belt alone. According to Wyoming Child Restraint Laws, children must be in a child restraint (car seat or booster seat) until they are 9 years old.
