Car Seat Inspections & Installations
Illinois Child Passenger Protection Act
The Child Passenger Protection Act requires that all children under age 8 be properly secured in an appropriate child safety restraint system. This includes the use of booster seats, which must only be used with a lap/shoulder safety belt. If the back seat of the vehicle is not equipped with lap/shoulder type safety belts, a child weighing more than 40 pounds may be transported in the back seat without a booster seat, secured with a lap belt only.
The Channahon Fire Protection District staffs 1 certified Car Seat Technician to assist and educate the community regarding proper car safety seat use and installation. Child safety seat installations can be done when a certified technician is on duty and available.
Inspections and installations are by appointment.
Call 1-815-467-6767 to schedule an appointment.
