Child Car Seats Installation & Inspections
Through a partnership with Geminus Community Partners, Crown Point Fire Rescue provides free inspection and installation of child restraints & car
seats. This service is by appointment only

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the Indiana Child Passenger Law?
In summary:
  • Children from birth to 8 years old must ride in child restraints
  • Children from 8 to 16 years old must use child restraints or seat belts
  • This law applies to all vehicles, including trucks and SUV's
  • This law applies to all vehicle seating positions
  • For more information, see Indiana IC Code 9-19-11

Where is the safest riding position in a vehicle?

  • All children should ride in the rear seat until age 13. They should be buckled up in a child safety seat, booster seat, or seat belt that is right for their age and size. 

Can I stop by anytime to have a firefighter look at my car seat?
  • No. The department only has a few certified car seat installers/inspectors that have gone through extensive training to properly install your car seat and ensure your child is safe. 

Do I have to make an appointment?
  • Yes. Due to the high demand for this free service, we ask that you make an appointment with us so you can be guaranteed a time slot in which a certified car seat technician will work one-on-one with you. All we ask, if you have to cancel your appointment, or if you are going to be late, please call the number listed above, so we can make arrangements.
