Each year millions of children are injured due to improper installation of infant/children car safety seats. Properly installed car seats and booster seats reduce the chance of death in a motor vehicle crash by 71% for infants under 1 year and 54% for toddlers ages 1 to 4 years of age according to statistics (Oklahoma State Dept. of Health). The Owasso Fire Department in conjunction with Safe Kids Worldwide provides trained staff that can assist with guidance and the proper installation of your child safety seat.
The SafeKids Tulsa area chapter maintains a complete schedule of Buckle Up Safety Events that are held at various facilities in and around the local area. As time permits, staff are available at each of our 3-stations to accommodate this service; it is suggested that you call beforehand, so that we can ensure that staff are on-site and available - you can also make an appointment by contacting our offices at (918) 272-5253. The Owasso Fire Department encourages you to make child car seat safety a top priority and know that we are here to guide you through the process.
