Child passenger safety experts at Children’s of Alabama are offering one-on-one car seat telephone consultations while in-person car seat checks are temporarily suspended because of COVID-19 social distancing precautions.

Parents and caregivers can call 800-504-9768 or 205-638-9900 to speak with a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician at Safe Kids Alabama. The telephone consultations are offered Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Road injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the United States, and more than half of car seats are not used or installed correctly.
“Our experts will be able to assist with questions that address the correct type of car seat needed for your individual child, as well as assist with questions specific to your individual car seat and your vehicle. If we are unable to provide assistance, we are able to provide specific information for the individual car seat manufacturers,” says Marie Crew, coordinator, Safe Kids Alabama at Children’s of Alabama.
