Northern Nevada Child Passenger Safety Seat Fitting Station

Three out of four car seats are installed incorrectly. The No. 1 cause of death for children under the age of 14 is motor vehicle crashes. There is a way to protect your children. The Northern Nevada Child Passenger Safety Seat Fitting Station is the region's first full-time facility to offer child vehicle safety restraint education, inspection and installation.

The Fitting Station is operated through a partnership with Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority (REMSA), Renown Children's Hospital and Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center.
