Car Seat Safety

Free car seat safety checks are available at Springfield Hospital.

Since 1997, Springfield Hospital has provided a Nationally Certified Passenger Safety Technician to assist families with the installation and use of their child’s car seat. Currently, the hospital partners with the VT Department of Health and the VT Governor’s Highway Safety Program to provide car seats to those who are in need of a seat.

Whether you need a car seat or have questions on how to use your current car seat, please make an appointment by calling Sandy Peplau, Marketing and Development at 802-885-7686 or emailing at
