A minor notice to expectant and new parents seeking help from firefighters or other emergency workers in installing your car seat.


Please seek this assistance PRIOR to bringing your new baby and the car seat to the firehouse.

Carrying the child on your lap in the passenger seat, I think, constitutes gross negligence. And on another note, not all emergency workers are trained in installing car seats. Unless one of them is a parent, they’ll likely either read the instructions or refuse to help based on liability concerns.

Best bet is to do it when you buy it, then do it again.
