Child Passenger Safety (CPS) RestraintsLittle Little Boy Dress-Up Like Tuff Guy

Help protect what is most precious in our lives. The Johnston County Health Department offers Convertible Seats, Combination Seats, and Booster Seats to eligible participants. Those eligible for a child restraint would be the legal guardian of the child who receives some form of government assistance, and only if the child is present. However, we do give free installations and free check ups if you already have a child restraint and want it checked or installed. We have a certified CPS Technician who will educate and instruct you on how to properly install a child restraint.

OHSO ~ Oklahoma Child Restraint Law

Children five (5) years old or younger must be properly restrained in either a child car seat or a booster seat appropriate for their height and weight. Children ages six (6) through twelve (12) must be properly restrained in either a child car seat, booster seat, or seat belt. Properly restrained means that the restraint system is correctly installed and being used in accordance with the seat manufacturer's instructions.

5 Ways Restraints Prevent Injury
(By Safe Kids)

  • Prevent ejection.
  • Contact the strongest parts of the body.
  • Spread forces over a wide area of the body.
  • Help the body to "ride down" the crash.
  • Protect the head and spinal cord.
