Child Safety Programs
The Child Passenger Safety Program provides education on how to properly install and use your child’s safety seat. This program is provided by grant funds from the New York State Governors Traffic Safety Committee, and in partnership with Safe Kids Worldwide. We can provide you with a free inspection of your current seat where we will check the seat for: recalls, if the seat has expired, is the seat appropriate for the child (within the height and weight limits of the seat), as well as the installation of your seat in the vehicle.
Our program also offers a Car Seat Distribution Class which can offer a seat if you do not already have one and cannot afford one*. The class offers a comprehensive look at all of the types of car seats, how to use them, and how to select the right seat for your child. **
*Free car seats require attendance to the class, and you must be a permanent Wayne County resident with a valid photo ID, and proof of current use of public assistance programs.
** Wayne County Public Health reserves the right to deny a free car seat to anyone at any time, using several factors of disqualification.
