Car Seat Inspection Events
with Child Passenger Safety Technicians, WMH Family Birthplace
Is your child's car seat installed correctly? When do you have to stop using LATCH? What is that hookey thing on the back of my car? When can my child ride forward facing?
If you don't know the answers to these and other car seat questions you are not alone. More than 90% of car seats in the State of Maine and either not correctly installed or misused.
OUR EVENTS ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED BUT YOU CAN CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT FOR EITHER AN INSPECTION OR DISTRIBUTION. 207-393-3462.
DON'T BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE!! COME TO A CAR SEAT SAFETY CHECK AND BECOME A SUPER-USER.
Registrtaion is not necessary just drop by the Norway Fire Department between 11am and 3pm. Enter from Beal Street.
Parents, caregivers, grandparents, anyone can ensure their child’s safety seats are properly installed; compatible with their vehicle; haven’t been subject to a recall; and are the appropriate seat for the child just by coming to one of our seat check events.
It is preferred that you have your child/children with you unless you are pregnant parents awaiting the birth of your baby.
If you are unable to attend an event inspections may be done by appointment. For more information, to make an appointment, or to learn about the free seat distribution program call 207-393-3462.
