Child Safety Seats

According to Safe Kids Worldwide, road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the United States. Seventy-three percent of car seats are not used or car seat being installedinstalled correctly. So before you hit the road, allow the North Shore Fire Department to check or install your car seat.

Our work to promote child passenger safety is our number one priority.  Knowing your car seat's history, and making sure your car seat is installed correctly are areas that our technicians will teach you so that you can always be sure your car seat is used correctly. The installation will include choosing the right direction (rear- or forward-facing), and checking the label to make sure it's appropriate for your child's age, weight, height and development.
