National Child Passenger Safety Program

There are two Car Seat Technicians on the Somers Fire Department.  They inspect car seats to ensure they are installed properly and used correctly by the owners to ensure children are as safe as possible.  This certification requires them to get recertified every two years which involves completing various car seat checks at different car seat events and participating in Continued Education Programs to earn a required amount of credits every 2 years.  Somers is one of the only Departments in Kenosha County offering car seat safety checks. This service is available to anyone upon request.
