Child Car Seats -
While the Fire Department does not offer installation assistance or inspection of car seats, department facilities are used to conduct Mayo Health System Child Passenger Safety Clinics. Rochester Fire Department provides space within fire stations for the inspections to be conducted out of the weather. They are done by Mayo Health System Employees who have been trained and certified as Child Passenger Safety Inspectors. The Rochester Optimist Club assists with the inspection clinics by providing staffing for appointment check-in and traffic direction through the fire station.
Child Car Seat Safety Clinics are held numerous times throughout the year. Trained & Certified personnel will instruct you on proper child safety seat installation. You must have an appointment to attend the clinic. To register for an up-coming car seat check contact: Kim Lombard at (507) 255-5066 or by e-mail: Lombard.firstname.lastname@example.org.
