Car Seats

One of the best ways to protect a child traveling in a vehicle is a properly used car seat.

Car seats have been shown to reduce injuries and fatalities during a crash. However, selecting and using the right seat can be a challenge. Each time we visit a car seat aisle, we find an array of options. Car seat experts say that the best car seat is the one that fits your child, fits your car and you are able to use it correctly every time - and our classes and checks are here to assist you.


Additionally, parents and caregivers now have an access to an electronic guide to help them select the correct seat for their child and provide safety tips about car seat use.

The Ultimate Car Seat Guide provides helpful tips to give parents and caregivers details on what they need to know to keep children safe while riding in vehicles.
