Car Seat Safety

Prepare a safe ride home from the hospital for your baby before he or she arrives. Our certified child passenger safety technicians will show you how to properly install our child-safety seat in your vehicle and adjust the safety features to fit your baby. This free car-seat inspection and education session takes about 20 to 30 minutes and can be completed in conjunction with your Pre-Admission Program. Call 419-354-8932 to schedule a free car seat check by a certified technician.
