If you're a new parent or a parent or guardian with a child about to need to transition into a larger car seat, there is a great resource available throughout the year to assure kids across the Northland are safe and secure in car seats.

Car seat safety clinics are free and they allow parents and caregivers to have their child safety seat inspected by a certified child passenger technician. The child passenger safety technician inspect and assist parents and caregivers in installing their child safety seats.

Parents across the Northland can take advantage of another car seat safety clinic as the Duluth Fire Department is hosting their third car seat clinic of the year in June.
