Did you know nearly 73% of child restraints are not installed or used correctly?

The Harrisonburg Fire Department offers a free car seat installation and education program to area residents. Our certified car seat technician, Bri Petit, teaches families how to transport children safely, which reduces the number of injuries and deaths associated with motor vehicle crashes. In addition, our department participates in the Virginia Department of Health's (VDH) free child safety seat program for income eligible children. To see if you qualify, go to Eligibility requirements. Currently, we are offering appointments between Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm. We strongly suggest you set up an appointment ahead of time.
