Child Passenger Safety

Car seat engineers work hard every day to ensure the seats they design keep children as safe as possible, but it is ultimately every caregiver's responsibility to ensure their child's car seat fits the child and vehicle and is used correctly during every ride.
   
Although car seat and vehicle manuals do a great job guiding parents through the installation process, questions or concerns may still arise. Wright County Public Health has certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians to help caregivers address issues. 

Training includes an explanation of the Minnesota Child Passenger Restraint Law and training on proper child restraint fit, use, and installation.
