We all want our children to travel safely in cars. Installing a car seat for younger children and babies can be a challenge. At Westlake Fire–EMS Department, we have certified Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Car Seat technicians to assist with the proper and safe installation of car seats. There are a few things you should know before you meet with a CPS technician. This is not like getting an oil change on your car, where you leave the car and go do something else. Working with a CPS technician will be a one-on-one learning experience. When you leave, you should be confident that your child’s seat is installed correctly and feel comfortable reinstalling it on your own. This may be the most important thing you learn. You may call to schedule an appointment or stop by and request assistance with a car seat during business hours.
