Complimentary Car Seat Checks
East Jefferson Fire Rescue provides complimentary car seat checks and will train new parents/grandparents, etc. in initial installation of car seats. The car seat checks take place at the administrative headquarters at 24 Seton Road, at the entrance to the Glen Cove industrial park just outside of Port Townsend. The car seat checks typically take about 30 minutes and we ask that the attendee bring their car seat manual and be prepared to be hands-on in the training. We will also conduct group car seat installation training (no formal certification) for organizations who transport children for others.
To schedule a car seat check or initial installation contact Bill Beezley at EJFR:
