The Platte County Buckle Up Kids car seat program is a collaboration between the Platte County Health Department (PCHD), Central Platte Fire Protection District (CPFPD), Northland Regional Ambulance District (NRAD), Riverside Fire Department (RFD), Southern Platte Fire Protection District (SPFPD), and West Platte Fire Department (WPFD). The program is funded by a grant through the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
We want all children to travel safely in cars. Correctly installing car seats for children can be a challenge. CPFPD, NRAD, RFD, SPFPD, and WPFD have certified car seat installers on staff. Parents and caregivers can receive free hands-on help to learn how to properly install their car seat. Platte County residents may qualify for a free car seat if income guidelines are met.

CPFPD, NRAD, RFD, SPFPD, and WPFD will be offering the Platte County Buckle up Kids car seat program at various community events throughout the year. Below are regularly scheduled events. Please check back for updates.
