Firefighters set 2023 car seat inspection schedule

Car seat inspection program

Jackson area families wanting to make sure their children travel safely can take advantage of the Car Seat Inspection Program from the Jackson Fire Department. Firefighters launched the program last year to provide monthly car seat checks for the Jackson area. 

The inspections are free and no prior sign up is needed. A 2023 inspection event list is included on this page. The inspections will take place at the Jackson Central Fire Station, 518 N. Jackson St., and Summit Township Fire Department Station 1, 2121 Ferguson Rd. 

Families are welcome to visit the fire stations for the checks during the following days and times: 

  • Jan. 26, 1-3 p.m., Jackson Central Fire Station 
  • No event planned in Feb. 
  • March 21, 1-3 p.m., Jackson Central Fire Station 
  • April 12, 1-3 p.m., Summit Fire Station 1
  • May 18, 1-3 p.m., Jackson Central Fire Station 
  • June 21, 1-3 p.m., Jackson Central Fire Station 
  • July 7, 1-3 p.m., Summit Fire Station 1
  • Aug. 23, 1-3 p.m., Jackson Central Fire Station 
  • Sept. 19, 1-3 p.m., Summit Fire Station 1
  • Oct. 9, 1-3 p.m., Summit Fire Station 1
  • Nov. 10, 1-3 p.m., Jackson Central Fire Station 
  • Dec. 7, 1-3 p.m., Jackson Central Fire Station

If you're visiting the Jackson Central Fire Station, pull into the south driveway of the fire station off of N. Jackson Street. Drive around the building past a yellow tower. There will be three large bay doors and a parking lot in front of them to park in. Firefighters will greet you once you've parked. Firefighters request parents or guardians bring their children and car seats to the inspection. Crews will look to make sure the car seat is in proper working order, fastened to the vehicle correctly, and is a safe fit for the child. A limited number of car seat replacements are available for free if firefighters find a seat is unsafe. 

This effort from Jackson firefighters is currently the only certified Car Seat Inspection Program in Jackson County.
