Child Seats

Schedule a Child Restraint Installation

The Avon Fire Department encourages parents to schedule a child safety seat check by appointment only. The purpose is to ensure that child passengers are properly secured.

The Ohio Child Passenger Safety Law Requires:

  • 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 and 9 inches tall must use a booster seat
  • Children ages 8 to 15 must use a child safety seat or seat belt

The three main reasons for improper installation are:

  • Incorrect seat installation
  • Wrong child/seat size
  • Loose restraints.

For your appointment please be sure to:

  • Bring your child with you if possible
  • Have your car seat and vehicle owner manuals handy
  • Try to have the seat installation area free of dirt and debris

For residents, seat checks are free of charge. Non-residents are charged $5 for installation.However, any donations will be used to maintain and enhance our car seat program.

We look forward to assisting you and meeting your safety needs. Call the Avon Fire Department at 440-934-1222 to schedule a child car seat fitting. Remember, installations are by appointment only.
