Car Seat Safety Inspections

Child safety seats can reduce fatal injury by up to 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for toddlers (ages 1-4) *.

Proper installation procedures can vary according to make and model of seat, make and model of vehicle, and size of child. Picture Rocks Fire and Medical District offers inspections to verify if your seats are installed correctly.

Proper installation procedures for child safety seats can vary according to:

  • Make and model of the seat
  • Make and model of the vehicle
  • Size of the child

Our personnel can verify if a seat has been recalled, provide proper installation instruction and will evaluate the owners ability to safety install a car seat on their own once they have been instructed to ensure child safety seats are properly installed if they need to be removed from the vehicle or moved to another. We cannot install that car seat for you.

Car seat inspections are by appointment only.  To schedule an inspection appointment please fill out the form to the right.  All inspections must be scheduled at least two days in advance.  You will receive an email confirmation of your appointment date and time once it is finalized.
