Car Seat Safety

 HAVE YOUR CAR SEAT CHECKED BY A CERTIFIED SAFETY SEAT TECHNICIAN

During the COVID-19 event we are suspending all in-person car seat checks and offering virtual installs instead via Zoom. Schedule your appointment by emailing carseats@brightonfire.org. Appointments will be available Monday - Friday and we will need at least 48 hours notice. Click here for an information sheet on this process.

Here is what you can expect:

  • A certified car seat technician will check the installation of your current seat and help you correct any problems.
  • The technician will show you how to get your seat in properly for future installations. The technician will go over safety issues such as proper strap placement, harness clip placement, and strap tightness.
  • The technician will be able to answer your questions on larger seats as your child grows and how those seats work.

**When purchasing a car seat, it is important to verify that the car seat is FMVSS 213 certified. This means the car seat meets safety standards in the United States. Many companies overseas will claim other certifications, but unless the car seat is FMVSS 213 certified, it does not meet U.S. safety standards.**
