Car seat safety: education, installation and inspection

75% of car seats are misused

This benefit, funded through a grant from the Nevada Office of Traffic Safety, is for anyone who needs a child-safety seat for their car or wants their child seat inspected to make sure it’s installed properly.

  • Child-safety seats for cars are available at reduced prices, usually between $10 and $45 (sometimes free), when we hold our car-seat events. Give us a call to learn about the next event.

  • We’ll also teach you how to install a car seat properly, at no cost. If it’s already installed, we’ll inspect it for free to make sure the seat is safe for your child. Call us to make an appointment.
