Car Seat Safety Information
Remember to use a car seat for transporting your child home. Your car seat base may remain in the car when you bring in the car seat into the hospital.
Parents can get help with using an infant car seat by contacting the Douglas County Fire District #2. Make an appointment with a Child Passenger Safety Technician, who can help you prepare for baby’s first ride home. Call 509-884-6671.
