Car Seats

 

Car Seat Inspections Lebanon Fire Department @ 765-482-8832 has certified child passenger safety technicians available to inspect car seats and educate parents and caregivers about car seat safety.    For an inspection, please bring the car seat, instruction booklet, vehicle, owner's manual and the child. For expectant parents, car seats can be inspected prior to your new arrival.   This is an education program for car seat safety. The technicians will inspect car seats and educate parents and caregivers about car seat safety. If a car seat is recommended for replacement and the parent or caregiver cannot afford a new car seat and is receiving government assistance; a replacement seat may be given. Donations are requested to assist in the purchasing of replacement seats.   Car seat inspections are done at the Public Safety Building located at 975 Lasley Drive in Lebanon. Inspection appointments are scheduled every Friday.

 

Here are a few tips:


  • Choose the car seat that fits your child and your vehicle

  • Check the manufacturer's directions for proper weight and use of the car seat

  • Children should remain rear facing for as long as possible

  • Children should remain in a 5-point harness as long as possible

  • The back seat is the safest position for the children

  • Backless boosters should only be used in seating positions with head rests

  • Safety belts should be worn low on the hips, across the chest and snug

  • It isn't just a law, it is an easy way to prevent injuries to infants and children
