Child Car Seat Safety Program
|April 22, 2011|
Nothing is more important than the safety of our children. With this in mind, the Town of Hempstead has established a free Child Car Seat Safety Check Program.
Hempstead Town's certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will inspect and properly install child car safety seats and instruct guardians on their proper installation. Appointments must be scheduled in advance. Generally, 30 minutes are alloted for each appointment. Please call the Department of Public Safety at (516) 538-1900, extension 217, Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:30 PM to schedule an appointment. You may also complete the appointment request form below and a Public Safety Officer will contact you at your daytime phone number upon review, usually the next business day.
Car seat safety inspections will be conducted at the Speno Park garage in East Meadow from 9 AM to 2 PM by appointment only as per the Fall 2012 - Winter 2013 schedule below.
During the summer months, car seat inspections will take place at neighborhood locations throughout the town from 9 AM to 2 PM. Appointments must be made in advance by calling the Department of Public Safety at (516) 538-1900, extension 217. Please note that summer appointments book early and are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
