Car Seat Program

Fire department personnel inspecting a child safety seat in a carIf you have a child safety seat in your car, according to a study done by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, there is a 90% chance that it is installed incorrectly.

To combat this escalating problem, the Delhi Township Fire Department, in conjunction with Children's Hospital Medical Center and AAA, is now offering Child Safety Seat Inspections.

Through these inspections (which are by appointment only) a certified Child Safety Seat Technician will inspect your child safety seat for any problems. They will check it for recalls, show you how to properly install it, go over correct ranges of usage and other basic child seat safety topics. These inspections help to eliminate the chance that your child could be one of the over 130,000 children who suffer injuries in vehicle crashes each year.

Call Ahead for Appointments

Remember, these are by appointment only, so please call ahead of time and allow yourself at least an hour for the inspection.
