Car seat safety

We can help you learn about installing car seats safely.

Before installing any car seat, please check your car seat and vehicle owner’s manuals.

Child safety seat inspection stations

Local data shows that about 80% of child restraints or car seats are not properly installed. A correctly installed child restraint can greatly reduce the risk of injury, or even death, in a car crash. The Penn State Children’s Hospital Pediatric Injury Prevention Program operates three permanent inspection stations, which offer appointments once a week on Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. 

To make an appointment, please call 717-531-SAFE (7233).
