Car Seat Safety Checks
Car Seat ProgramThe Liberty Township Fire Department has made a commitment to help our community remain as safe as possible. One of our more popular safety programs is the Child Passenger Safety Seat Program. A group of fire fighters have become specially trained and certified as child safety seat technicians. Depending on availability, they are willing to assist you with installing your new car seat, answering any questions you may have and/or checking to see if your current car seat is properly sized and faced for your child.
In addition to this, they will also check a constantly updated online database of car seat recalls to ensure that the seat you are using has no defects and still meets all federal standard. There is no charge for this service and no limit to the number of seats installed. We suggest you call 513-759-7530 on the day that you would like to have your car seat installed and ask to speak to one of the child safety seat technicians to determine their availability.
Car Seat Installation
Many people assume that a car seat installation is a simple and straightforward thing to do. In reality, studies show that as many as 90% of car seats are either not properly matched to the child's size or are improperly installed. Don't take a chance with your child's safety - read your manual and when in doubt, call the Fire Department for help. That's what we are here for!
To speak to a car seat technician, please call Liberty Township Fire Department Headquarters at 513-759-7530. We have weekday, weeknights or weekend appointments available.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
The best resource for car seat requirements, recalls, ratings and more is the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Their site includes a wealth of information.
