Car Seat Information and Checks

The Right Seat.  The Right Size.  The Right Use.

Child Passenger SafetyFind out if yours is right… Child Passenger Safety Specialists can answer questions regarding child safety seats and check your car seats.  At a check, seats are evaluated for: defects, recall listings, suitability for the age of the child, and fit with the safety belt system in the vehicle.  To get your child safety seats checked, call (320) 968-5087 to set up an appointment at the Public Health office in Foley.  Please allow 30 minutes for each seat to be checked.  Available free to all Benton County residents.
