Car Seat: Installation Inspection Clinics

Come and have your child's safety seat inspected to make sure that you have it installed and are using it correctly. Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will provide a complete inspection for you free of charge. 

Inspections are done by APPOINTMENT ONLY.  Please call Mayo Clinic's Trauma Center at 507/538-3740 or e-mail to schedule an appointment. Clinics are held once monthly, and times vary.  Please call for dates/times. The location of the clinic is the new Fire Station #2, 2185 Wheelock Dr NE, Rochester, Minnesota (this is off of Viola Rd NE).  

You are welcome to attend the Inspection Clinic before or after the birth of the child. The following information is requested at the time of scheduling your appointment:

      *  Make, model, and year of your vehicle

      *  Name, birth date, weight, and height of child (if attending after birth)

      *  Name and address of parents or caregiver

Inspections are performed by Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians and not the fire fighters.  Please do not show up at the Fire Department without an appointment.  

NOTE: We do still recommend the Infant Passenger Safety Class for first-time expectant parents. So please check out that page.
