The Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department provides residents with child car seat checks and installation by appointment only, or at pre-announced community events when a car seat station is advertised. To make an appointment, please call 954-346-1396. Please have the car seat make and model available, as well as date of manufacture, the age and weight of the child, and make, model and year of vehicle, so we can verify any special requirements for installing your child or grandchild's car safety seat. If you need assistance locating this information, please call our office. There is no charge for car seat checks or installations.
Florida law requires every operator of a motor vehicle driven on Florida roads to provide for the protection of any child, 5 years of age or younger, by using a crash-tested, federally approved car seat. For children up to 3 years old, the restraint must be a separate carrier or a vehicle manufacturer's integrated child seat. For children aged 4 through 5 years, a separate carrier, an integrated child seat, or a child booster seat may be used. For passengers age 6 through 17 years, a seat belt must be used while riding in a motor vehicle.
