Car Seat Checks and Installations

The Baltimore County Police Department, with support from the Baltimore County Fire and Health Departments, has offered car seat checks and installation dates in past years. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, in-person car seat safety checks are not being offered at this time.

Instead, the Maryland Department of Health's Kids In Safety Seats (KISS) is offering a Video Car Seat Assistance Program for help with correctly using and installing your child's car seat. A Zoom appointment can be scheduled online for remote face-to-face education and guidance on installing your car seat properly. A selection of “Live” Child Passenger Safety webinars and registration links are also available online.

KISS has also launched a live, interactive car seat safety education webinar, Traveling Safely With Your New Baby. This free webinar is a great option for expectant and brand new parents, focusing exclusively on the safe transportation needs of newborns. It is offered monthly and registration is required. Participants will learn about the following topics.

  • Maryland’s child passenger safety laws
  • Appropriate car seat types for infants
  • Key points of installing a rear-facing car seat
  • Proper harnessing of infants in car seats
  • Child passenger safety resources

You can also reach out to the KISS Helpline at 1-800-370-SEAT (7328) and leave a message or email KISS is a statewide, nonprofit program funded through a federal grant. 

The KISS team is there to help you!
