The Windsor Police Department provides Child Safety Seat Installation services. Please call (860) 688-5273 to make an appointment with Child Passenger Safety Certified Officers Fiano or Bracero.
According to the National Child Passenger Safety Website, there are a couple of helpful facts fore before, during and after the car seat installation and/or check up:
Before the Car Seat Checkup
- Be prepared to learn, not just watch the CPS technician install the car seat. They’re trained to teach you.
- Try to schedule an appointment one to two months prior to your baby’s due date just in case you deliver early. Many CPS technicians and their agencies require appointments several weeks in advance.
- If your child is already born, know your child’s weight and height, and bring your child with you. If possible, also bring another adult to help watch the child while you are learning.
- Install the seat in your vehicle before your car seat checkup appointment. Be sure to use the instructions that came with the child car seat and the instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual regarding car seats.
- Bring the car seat instructions and the vehicle owner’s manual with you to your appointment.
