Child Safety Seats

The Gillespie County Extension Office offers free child safety seat inspections.  Please call or come by our office to set up an appointment with a county agent for a car seat inspection.  If at all possible, the child must be present at the appointment to ensure that the seat is fitted and installed correctly.

COVID has changed how Agents can inspect your child’s car seat.

Would Your Child‘s Car Seat Pass Inspection?  –  September 20-26 is National Child Passenger Safety Week
