Car Seat Safety
Don’t take a chance. Have your child’s safety seat inspected! Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of injury-related death among children ages 14 and under.Why? In many cases, children are either not properly buckled into their safety seats or parents don’t realize that a booster seat is vital to ensuring children fit safely in their vehicle’s seat belt.Installing a car seat correctly is the most important thing you can do to protect your child if you are in a crash. And Lacey Fire District 3 wants to make sure your child is safe and sound when riding in your car. That’s why we have staff available to offer free child car seat inspections and installations.
Car seat checks are available at the District’s Headquarters on the Third Tuesday of each month from 11 am to 1 pm. Additional dates and times are also available throughout the area. Please contact the District’s Headquarters at 360-491-2410 for specific dates and times or for other questions you may have. PLEASE NOTE: For car seat inspection and/or installation other than at the scheduled events below, YOU MUST MAKE AN APPOINTMENT. Due to the limited number of car seat technicians on site, we cannot guarantee same day service.
