Child Safety Seat Program
We are proud to say that we currently employ a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians to facilitate the program. These technicians are available to assist with child safety seat questions and to check the installation of the seat for the safety of your child.
A parent or guardian is eligible to receive a child restraint system-convertible, combination, or booster seat if they are a WIC or Medicaid client. The parent or guardian must complete a car seat application and attend an educational session on proper use and installation of the child safety seat. The educational training reviews proper installation and use of child restraints, as well as car seat laws in Ohio.
Call the Health District at (419) 947-1545 x 322 and ask to speak to a registered car seat technician.
An approximate four out of five car seats are not used correctly. Don’t let your child be one of them! We can help you install your car seat correctly in your vehicle. Through car seat checks, Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians are able to help parents learn to use their car seat so that their child is properly protected. These specially trained technicians also provide parents with the most reliable up-to-date safety information available regarding car seats, including recall information and proper seat use. It is important that parents direct their questions about car seats to a Certified Car Seat Technician; salespeople or even police officers may not have current information about car seat safety.Call ahead for an appointment.
