Car Seat Inspections

The Oak Forest Fire Department strives to help residents in any way possible, and not just for emergencies. As part of our mission, we help caregivers safely transport children with the use of child safety seats. Our certified technicians inspect or install child safety seats so that caregivers feel comfortable when driving with their child. The technician's goal is to educate caregivers on safe practices and instill confidence in them to properly install their child safety seats. As a result of the appointment, caregivers should be able to install the child safety seat on their own and secure the child correctly.

If you would like to utilize this program, please complete the appointment request form or call 708-687-6050 to schedule an appointment with one of our certified technicians. Please note, appointments last approximately 20-30 minutes.  Also, appointments may be rescheduled at the last minute due to emergency calls.
