Your children are important to you! They’re important to the Poudre Fire Authority too, which is why we have a team of car seat technicians.
These trained specialists are available to teach parents how to safely install their car seats and ensure their child is as safe as possible while in it. This service is great for new parents, as well as people who just want to ‘double check’ that they are doing everything correctly.
While you’re thinking about safety, did you know PFA will conduct a home safety check to look for potential fire hazards and offer advice. Check it out here! (Link)
"In my years of service, I've seen too many children injured in vehicle accidents because their car seats weren't fitted properly. Every seat we check is a potential life saved. It's a service we are happy to provide." -PFA Firefighter and Car Seat Technician.

Ensure the child safety seat is not a recalled model.
Advise on how to choose an age, height and weight appropriate child safety seat.
Instruct and demonstrate how to install and use the appropriate child safety seat in the vehicle.
Instruct and demonstrate how to correctly place a child in the appropriate child safety seat.
Discuss other vehicles and child safety seats they own, and provide instructions to repeat the correct procedure with other seats or when installing the seat in other cars.
