Car Seat Inspections

Our local fire house and police stations do not check car seat installations, so I had no clue where to go. Yet again Google has not let me down. The below link sorts by state and will give you a map or list of locations. Hope this can help someone else.

Re: Car Seat Inspections

  • Great resource! Thanks for sharing. Apparently my town doesn't either, but this showed me that the state police station which is just a town (10 min.) over does.

    So glad I could help! I am a FTM and I want to make sure I have it installed correctly. I have no clue what I am doing. Lol

  • Thank you for this website!
  • Just a helpful hint ladies... call before you go to these places.  I just looked on the website or my town and the place they have listed I knew no longer checked them so I called and they led me in the right direction.

  • If you are looking for a place check car seats for the littles a Facebook groups. They have a list of techs, many who will come to you! I have had one really great fire house check and one mediocre, but I trust these techs!

    Thanks for the info!

    I had heard police and fire stations did checks, but I had no idea which ones or who to contact.

    • Both my local hospital and birthing center offer car seat safety courses for a small fee and also check installation in your car during that class.  It'd be worth looking into, even if not free and even if you are doing a home birth.
