Car Seat Safety

Waterbury Ambulance is now a Child Safety Seat Fitting Station!

National misuse rate of children in car seats have historically been upwards of 75%.

The BEST child safety seat is one that is correctly installed and used properly every time you drive!

This is a free and convenient way to have your child's car seat inspected by a NHTSA-certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. Parents and caregivers receive personal instruction on the proper selection, installation, and use of their car seats.  Soon-to-be parents are encouraged to set up an appointment as well, as early as 30-45 days before your due date!

Fittings take about 30 minutes per seat/child.

To make an appointment to have your car seat checked for proper fit and installation please contact Child Passenger Safety Specialist Lindsay Johnson at 802-798-2515.

Please bring the following to your appointment:

  • The child who will be using the seat
  • Owner's manual for the car seat
  • Owner's manual for the vehicle
