Car Seat Checks

The best way to protect your child while riding in a vehicle is to put them in the right seat, at the right time, and use it the right way. It is important to ensure the seat is installed properly and in the right direction; the seat is the right fit for your child; and to make sure you have the harnesses fitted correctly. By appointment and at public safety events throughout the year, the Michigan City Fire Department offers car seat checks and installation by a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician to the community free of charge. 

To make an appointment for a Car Seat Check, please contact the Public Information Officer.
