Car Seat Program

Hancock Health offers FREE child restraint (car seat) assistance. Parents and caregivers can schedule appointments to have their child and/or seat evaluated by a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST). The CPST will:

  • Evaluate the way that the child is currently traveling
  • Check the child’s current restraint for recalls
  • Check for proper fit and installation
  • Provide education to the parent/caregiver on how to properly use and install the child restraint
  • Provide a new seat if necessary (**must meet financial guidelines, please inquire*

Did you know that 9 out of 10 child restraints used in vehicles today are either being used or installed improperly?  Hancock Health wants to encourage the proper use of child restraints to ensure that all children are riding safely. Evaluations are done by appointment only and last approximately 30 minutes per child/seat.

Spots fill quickly so don’t wait! Click HERE to schedule.
