Car Seat Safety

Did you know that more than 4 out of every 5 car seats Oconto County are being used incorrectly?
Don’t let your child’s be one of them!

Get your child’s car seat checked for FREE! Call 920-834-7000 to make a car seat appointment held several times a month throughout the county.

Need a new car seat? Our program offers brand new car seats to parents/caregivers at either full price, reduced price or for no cost. To receive a no cost seat, the child must be present, fall within the WIC income guidelines, be in need of a new seat, and the seat must stay with the child. Cash donations are welcome and appreciated! The seats are available by appointment only or at one of our community car seat check events. Call 920-834-7000 with questions or to make an appointment.
