Now Offering FREE Car Seat Inspections!

Humboldt County Memorial Hospital Public Health offers free car seat inspections monthly with their Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, April Knight in the HCMH ambulance garage. Each car seat takes about 15 minutes, and she will go over whether or not it is the best seat for your child, proper positioning, proper installation, if there are any recalls on your particular seat, and if the seat may be expired, as well as answer any questions you may have. You may call Public Health at 515-332-2492 and schedule to have your seat(s) checked at one of our upcoming check events, or April would be glad to set something else up with you if the times do not work in your schedule. Here is the schedule for the remainder of 2016: 

Thursday, October 6, 2016 from 3-4 pm

Thursday, November 3, 2016 from 3-5 pm
