Car Seat Safety
75 percent of car seats are not installed the right way. Please call Darla at 573-874-7556 to schedule a car seat inspection by a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. If you need a car seat but cannot afford one, visit the Voluntary Action Center to apply for assistance. You must live in our service area and meet income guidelines to qualify.
