Anderson Fire Department Installs Car Seats

Before bringing the newborn home from Mercy Anderson Hospital, you need the car seat installed safely and properly.  Anderson Township Fire & EMS has four certified seat installers.  The Township covers the expense to train these individuals but it is such an important service we make it available to anyone who may need it, regardless of residency location.  Call Station 22 at 513-688-8093 and schedule a time to install the seat.  Be safe with your newborn and child of any age.   

Ohio’s Child Passenger Safety Law requires that children less than 4 years old or 40 pounds must use a child safety seat meeting federal motor vehicle safety standards.  Children less than 8 years old, unless they are at least 4 feet, 9 inches tall must use a booster seat.
