2023 car seat inspection schedule

Car seat inspection program

Jackson area families wanting to make sure their children travel safely can take advantage of the Car Seat Inspection Program from the Jackson Fire Department. Firefighters launched the program in 2022 to provide monthly car seat checks for the Jackson area. 

The inspections are free and no prior sign up is needed. A 2023 inspection event list is included on this page. The inspections will take place at the Jackson Central Fire Station, 518 N. Jackson St.

Families are welcome to visit the fire station for the checks between 1-3 p.m. on the following dates: 

  • June 22
  • July 10
  • Aug. 24
  • Sept. 20
  • Oct. 10
  • Nov. 8
  • Dec. 12

When visiting the Jackson Central Fire Station, pull into the south driveway of the fire station off of N. Jackson Street. Drive around the building past a yellow tower. There will be three large bay doors and a parking lot in front of them to park in. Firefighters will greet you once you've parked. 

Firefighters request parents or guardians bring their children and car seats to the inspection. Crews will look to make sure the car seat is in proper working order, fastened to the vehicle correctly, and is a safe fit for the child. A limited number of car seat replacements are available for free if firefighters find a seat is unsafe. 

This effort from Jackson firefighters is currently the only certified Car Seat Inspection Program in Jackson County.
