Car Seat Safety

The Health Department has a certified child passenger safety technician who is available to help parents and caregivers choose the right car seat for children, make sure the seat is installed properly, and understand what laws apply to child safety seats.

A limited supply of car seats are available to low-income Forest County families. Call us today to see if you’re eligible! For more information on laws regarding child safety seats, please see the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s site.
