How to Schedule an Appointment

Safe Kids offers free car seat checkups. Car seat checkups are appointment only and are scheduled up to 4-6 weeks in advance with our Child Passenger Safety Technician. Due to high demand, we recommend scheduling early if you're pregnant. 

To schedule a car seat checkup, you can reach out to our Safe Kids coordinator at [email protected].

What to Expect at Your Appointment

Appointments will take 40-60 minutes to complete.

Our goal is to educate you on best seating positions for your car seats, buckling children into the seat correctly, adjusting the seat for the growing child, and making sure you are comfortable installing the seat in your own vehicle.

Many car seat manufacturers provide videos instructions for installation of their products. The manufacturer videos are designed assist caretakers with the proper installation of child safety seats and may prove beneficial until we can schedule an appointment for you.

Cancelations and No-Shows

Requests to cancel appointments should be received no later than 24 hours in advance of your scheduled appointment time. In the instances of no-shows, it will be the discretion of the program coordinator on whether an appointment will be rescheduled. If an individual cancels or no-shows more than one appointment, they will not receive an opportunity to reschedule an appointment again in the future.

The goal of the appointment is that caretakers leave with information needed to remove, adjust, and install car seats on their own going forward.
