The Safety Seat Program offers support to local residents to help protect children in the event of a vehicle accident. Services available to all Clinton County residents are child safety seat inspections, installation guidance, product recall checks and informative literature.
Clinton County participates in the Ohio Department of Health’s Ohio Buckles Buckeye program to offer assistance to eligible low income families. The goal of this program is to increase availability of child safety seats to families that otherwise could not afford them. Contact us to determine if your family meets the programs requirements.
