Car Seats

Let’s Work Together to Keep Children Safe in Cars!

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death in children ages two to 14, and the leading cause of injury-related death for children younger than two.

  • Keep Children rear-facing for as long as possible when riding in cars
  • Install your child’s car seat using either the lower anchors (LATCH) –or– seatbelt
  • Car seat labels help you choose the correct car seat for your child’s height and weight

Do you have questions about a child’s car seat? A Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician is available to answer your questions, provide education, and check to make sure your car seat is installed correctly.   Appointments are required and take about 30 minutes. Call Greenfield Health Department at 414-329-5275 or the Greenfield Fire Department at 414-595-7946 to make an appointment.
