Child Car Seat Program
Automobile crashes are the number one causes of injury and death to children in the nation. In 1997, the Laramie Fire Department began participating in a Child Car Seat Program through funds granted by a community Well Aware Committee as well as the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Since that time funding has continued through grants, donations, and fund raisers. Tuesdays and Saturdays from 1:30pm to 4pm are days that scheduled car seat education inspections are typically provided. Contact the Fire Department to arrange an inspection appointment.
