Public Safety Education - Child Car Seat Safety

Presented as part of the Greeley Fire Department Public Education and Awareness series.
 
Child Car Seat Safety

Child safety is always a big concern for parents, especially while traveling. You may not know that you and your family are at the greatest risk for injury while driving. Many parents are unaware that they are putting their children at even greater risk by not properly installing their child's car seat or not using the correct seat for their child.

The Greeley Fire Department offers car seat safety checks to help insure the safety of your children by checking the installation and inspection of your child's car seat.
Greeley Fire Department firefighters are available to check the installation and fit of your child's car seat. Seat safety Checks/installations are done
