Child Safety Seat Calendar

Child safety seat checkups and inspection stations provide parents and caregivers with the opportunity to have their child's safety seat checked by a nationally certified child passenger safety (CPS) technician or instructor to determine if it is safe and being used correctly.  The service is provided free-of-charge as a public service.
