Each year millions of children are injured due to improper installation of infant/children car safety seats. Properly installed car seats and booster seats reduce the chance of death in a motor vehicle crash by 71% for infants under 1 year and 54% for toddlers ages 1 to 4 years of age (Oklahoma State Dept. of Health statistics). The Owasso Fire Department in conjunction with Safe Kids Worldwide provides trained staff that can inspect and assist with the proper installation of your child safety seat.
As time permits, staff are available at each of our 3-stations to accommodate this service; it is suggested that you call beforehand, so that we can make sure staff are on-site and available - you can also make an appointment by contacting our offices at (918) 272-5253. The SafeKids Tulsa area chapter has a monthly schedule of Car Seat Checkup Events that are held at various facilities in and around the local areas. Check out the monthly as well as a complete listing of scheduled events. The Owasso Fire Department encourages you to make child car seat safety a top priority and know that we are here to guide you through the process.
