Will NFD check my child's car seat to make sure it's safe?

Yes! But you have to make an appointment.  NFD has one certified car seat safety technician on staff that will provide a one-on-one opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn about child passenger safety and have their car seats inspected for proper installation.   Please bring the children who will be riding in the car seats, the vehicle owner manual, and the car seat instruction booklet if at all possible. 

These checks can be done at your home or at one of our fire stations, but again, they are by appointment only to make sure that the technician can meet with you.  

Make an appointment by calling 309-454-9622.
