How to properly install a car seat

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).
