Sparrow Clinton & Safe Kids offer free car seat installation

Having trouble installing your child's car seat?

Sparrow Clinton Hospital can help.

An active and integral member of the Healthy Communities Coalition, Sparrow Clinton Hospital provides a monthly car seat fitting station through Capital Area Safe Kids - Clinton County. This program offers low income Clinton County residents free car/booster seats and replacement of damaged or recalled car seats. For other recipients, a donation of $30 per seat is encouraged.

Car seat fittings at Sparrow Clinton Hospital are by appointment only. The car seat fitting station is held on the third Tuesday of each month. Hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Recipients must be residents of Clinton County. Children or infants using the seats must be present during the installation to ensure a proper fit. Seats should be installed in the vehicle in which the children will regularly travel. Plan to spend at least 30 minutes per seat installation.

To schedule an appointment for the Jan. 21 fitting station, call Jackie at 989.227.3334.
