Child Safety Seat Inspection Stations
During child safety seat checkup events and inspection stations, nationally certified child passenger safety (CPS) technicians assess proper seat use based on the child's age height, weight, and development. Technicians will also provide education to parents and caregivers on proper fit and correct use in the vehicle. This public service is free-of-charge.
