Child Safety Seat Fitting

Child seatThe Valparaiso Fire Department is a permanent fitting station for child safety seats. We have certified child safety seat technicians who assist parents and other caregivers with proper use and installation. These technicians are certified by the National Child Passenger Safety Board after attending an extensive 35 hour training session. They must also re-certify every two years in order to keep installing safety seats.

For a free inspection or installation training, please call Debbie during normal business hours M-F 8:30 am - 4:30 pm CT at 219.462.8325 to schedule an appointment.

There are also brochures available at Fire Station #2 / Headquarters (2605 Cumberland Dr., Valparaiso, IN 46383) in regards to the Indiana Child Passenger Law, "Safe Kids" information with Children in and Around Cars, as well as quick reference guides for weight/height/age in comparison to car or booster seats.  The links below have some helpful information as well:
