Child Car Seat Safety Checks

Car seat engineers work hard every day to ensure their seats keep children as safe as possible, but it is ultimately every parents responsibility to ensure their child's car seat is used and installed correctly each time.
   
Although car seat and vehicle manuals do a great job guiding parents the installation process; questions or concerns may still arise. Wright County Public Health has over 12 certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians to help parents address those issues.

Expired or damaged car seats can be recycled at the Wright County Compost and Recycling Facility.
Child Car Seat Safety Checks are available:
By appointment ONLY
