Options for Life offers free car seat inspections and car seat safety classes. Our trained certified Car Seat Safety Technicians can educate the parent or caregiver on how to ensure the child’s car seat is fitted and installed correctly. Education and proper use of car seats, booster seats, seat belts, and vehicle safety systems helps save lives and can prevent injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that properly installed child safety seats can
reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for toddlers ages 1-4. The best way to protect children in the car is to put them in the right seat at the right time – and use it the right way!

Car seat classes are on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month at 9:30 a.m. during summer months. Classroom instruction and car seat installation is approximately one hour. The class includes hands-on practice and a short video.

Class topics include:

  • how to determine the best car seat for the child’s age, weight, and height
  • proper use of locking mechanisms in seat belts
  • review of manufacture recommendations

Car seats are provided and installed. Space is limited and appointments are required. Please call, to sign up or for more information. We also provide car seat inspections Monday - Thursday. Call our Resource Center, at 830-629-7565, if you would like to schedule your car seat inspection.

Walk-in requests will be considered.
