Child Passenger Safety Week

Child sitting in a car seatCar crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 12 years old. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts. Have your car seat checked and be certain your child is riding in the right car seat for their age and size. Car seat checks will take place all over the state throughout the year and during National Child Passenger Safety Week in September. 

The Injury Prevention Service will provide car seat checks on demand for National Child Passenger Safety Week and by appointment for the rest of the year. The Oklahoma State Department of Health is located at 1000 NE 10th Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73117. Please park in the visitor lot and come to the first floor to Vital Records to sign up. Please be advised, your children must be with you to have your seat checked. A limited number of car seats will be available for eligible families. For more information, please call 405-271-3430.
