Please note: A "Car Seat Inspection Station" is a car seat checkup event that is held at a regular location on a regular day and time every month. "Car Seat Checkup Events" are events that are conducted at various locations and at various times throughout the year. Inspection Stations open year-round inside heated buildings while Car Seat Checkup Events are usually conducted outside during the months of May through September. All Safe Kids Maine Car Seat Inspection Stations and Checkup Events are staffed by Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians. Please bring your car seat's instruction manual and the vehicle owner's manual, if available.
Safe Kids Maine conducts a variety of classes including Child Passenger Safety Technician Certification Classes and Child Passenger Safety Technical Update Classes. Learn more about becoming a CPS Technician at www.cpsboard.org
