The Oak Creek Health Department offers free car seat checks to all residents. Call 414-766-7950 today for an appointment!

We educate parents, caregivers, and grandparents on how to properly install a child’s car seat to reduce the chance of serious injury or death if involved in a motor vehicle crash.

If you cannot afford a car seat the Oak Creek Health Department may have seats available. Please call for availability and to see if you qualify.

Donations are accepted.
