Each technician has received certification as a Child Restraint Technician. This certificate requires a renewal every 2 years. Child Restraint Technicians conduct several checkpoints per year. At these checkpoints, they examine child restraint seats, check records to see if the seat is on a recall list and teach parents how to properly install child safety seats. The fire department gets numerous calls from the public and on many occasions, a parent may come by one of the stations and request one-on-one instructions on how to install child car seats.
