Child seat checking and advice on child safety in a vehicle

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service personnel check the safe fitting of child seats at events across Norfolk. For advice on child seat safety or to arrange for the Service to attend your event for seat checking.

The use of a correctly fitted child restraint system greatly reduces the risk of a child being injured in the event of a crash, we witness this many times each year.

The law says that all children up to 135cm tall (around 4'5"), or the age of 12, whichever comes first, in the front or rear seats in cars, vans and other goods vehicles must travel in the correct child restraint for their weight with very few exceptions.
