Child car seat inspections

It’s important to properly install your child’s seat. The best source of information specific to your car seat is from the car-seat manufacturer. Always refer to the installation instructions the manufacturer provides with your car seat.

Drop-in inspections

Car seats have become safer and easier to install, due to improved technology of both car-seat and vehicle design. If you are still uncertain about the installation of your seat, free drop-in inspections are currently offered by technicians certified by St. John’s Ambulance at the following fire stations in Winnipeg, Brandon, Dauphin, Lac du Bonnet, Portage la Prairie, Ste.
