The Center Point Fire District has implemented a new program to install child safety car seats. The program will allow you to make an appointment at one of our stations to have your child safety seat properly fitted to your car. This program is done as a service to our citizens at no additional cost.

In 1999, 1,724 child occupants age 14 and under died in motor vehicle crashes. About 61% of motor vehicle occupants ages 15 and under who were killed in fatal crashes were unrestrained. Approximately 272,000 children were injured as occupants in motor vehicle-related crashes. Approximately 29% of children ages four and under ride unrestrained, placing them at twice the risk of death and injury as those riding restrained.

Child safety seats, when correctly installed and used, reduce the risk of death by up to 71%. However, recent studies show that more than 85% of all child safety seats are installed improperly.  

In the past, parents would have to travel downtown to get the car seats checked and fitted properly.  As a service to our citizens, we are now providing this service to our citizens. We now have several employees trained to a technician level in child seat installation. If you would like to make an appointment to have your seat properly installed please call us at (205)853-8295
