Child Safety Seat information

We all want our young passengers to be as safe as possible while traveling on our highways and roads and this starts before the vehicle is ever turned on. Correct usage of child safety restraint systems are paramount to keeping our kiddos as safe as they can be while riding in a vehicle. While there is a huge selection of backwards facing, forward facing, booster seats, and seat belt positioning devices out there on the market, we have technicians on staff at ECEMS to assist you in both selecting the correct seat and helping you learn the ins and outs of installation of these devices to keep your precious cargo safe. 

Being prepared is the name of the game when it comes to safety, and car seats are no exception. Having your car seat installed and getting used to its quirks isn't something that you want to be worrying about after your child is already here. We recommend coming in to chat with one of our installation techs several weeks before your due date to have one less thing to worry about when kiddo arrives. 

You can call the EMS station in Hays, KS at 785-628-9461 anytime to contact a tech that can help you in person or over the phone in installing your car seats. 

Most people are surprised that the #1 killer of children in the USA is preventable injuries, and us at ECEMS seek to reduce that through education, awareness programs, and access to safety devices.

Ellis County EMS is partnered with SafeKids Worldwide, a non-profit agency that seeks to prevent childhood injuries through education and risk awareness. Listed to the side of the page is a list of resources to help you navigate the "FUN" of the car seat world.
