Car Seat and Crib Programs

Child Passenger Safety

Wood County Health Department provides FREE child car seat inspections. Our certified child passenger safety technicians will check your child restraint to make sure it is safe and has not been recalled. They will teach you how to safely secure your child in the car seat and how to install it properly in your vehicle.

A car seat program is available for families who are unable to purchase a car seat or booster seat for their child. Families who are currently eligible for at least one government assistance program such as WIC or FoodShare qualify to receive a reduced cost car seat. A donation of $25 for infant, convertible, or combination restraints and $10 for a booster seat is encouraged.

A child seat rental program is also available. This program is designed for short-term rentals, with a maximum rental period of two weeks. A $25 deposit for infant, convertible, and combination restraints and $10 for boosters is required, but refunded once the child restraint is returned in good condition.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, call Wood County Health Department at 715-421-8911.
