Free Car Seat Safety and Installation checks are now available in our Michigan City office location at 302 W. 8th Street. Appointments are recommended but not necessary. A National Certified Passenger Safety Technician can make sure your car seat is correctly installed, is the right fit for your child, and is in the best position in your car. If your car seat is expired (car seats expire after seven years or unless manufacturer label states differently), is damaged or has broken or missing parts we will replace your seat.

Please call 219-326-6808 for further questions, please ask for the Health Department
