Child Safety Seats

Car Seat Distribution for Low-Income Families

Livingston County parents and caregivers who have limited financial resources (receive/meet the income requirements to receive SNAP/Food Stamps or WIC benefits) can receive a free car seat along with information and hands-on assistance on how to properly install and use child safety restraint systems and safety belts. NOTE: A limited number of free child safety seats are available.

Monthly Child Safety Seat Check Events & Fitting Stations

Events are held throughout Livingston County for parents and caregivers to receive information and hands-on assistance on how to properly install and use child safety restraint systems and safety belts. Visit our Events Calendar (or Facebook page) for a list of upcoming events. If you are a county resident and cannot attend a car seat check, please contact the CCE-Livingston office to schedule an appointment with our educator.

In addition, numerous county organizations/agencies offer information and hands-on assistance. The following are permanent fitting stations in Livingston County: Livingston County Sheriffs Office, Mount Morris Police Department, Nunda Police Department, Avon Police Department, Caledonia Police Department, Catholic Charities, Chances & Changes, and the Arc of Livingston-Wyoming.

Certification Programs

National Child Passenger Safety Technician Certification

In this 32 hour course, CPS Technicians and Instructors put their knowledge to work through a variety of activities, including child safety seat checks where parents and caregivers receive education and hands-on assistance with the proper use of child restraint systems and safety belts.

Child Passenger Safety Technician Continuing Education

This training focuses on updates and challenges in child passenger safety for technicians. This continuing education class consists of an in-person session and is classified as a Category #1 CPS CEU worth 6 CEUs. This training will satisfy the requirement for the CEU portion of a recertification.

NOTE: Technicians will still need child safety seat sign offs by an instructor and a community event. These are not available at this training. Technicians are asked to bring their Technician Certification Card and Safe Kids user name and password. An opportunity to register CEUs will be provided at the end of the class.
