Car-Seat-Award
The High Ridge Fire District recently received recognition from Safe Kids St. Louis for the efforts made to provide child safety through the HRFD Child Passenger Safety Seat Program.

Since October 2009 the High Ridge Fire Protection District has made a commitment improve the safety of area children through the HRFD Child Passenger Safety Seat Program.  This program is funded by Safe Kids Worldwide through Safe Kids St. Louis.  The Safe Kids organization provides awareness and education concerning all aspects of child safety including car seat safety.  Safe Kids also helps locally by providing low cost car seats for families in need. On average four out of every five car seats are installed incorrectly. That’s means that 80% of our children are not as protected as we would like them to be. This may not seem very concerning until you understand that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children of every age from 2 to 14 years old.

 Since its inception the HRFD Child Safety Seat program has grown immensely. It is our goal to protect every child possible and reduce today's shocking child mortality statistics.  This past summer your High Ridge Firefighters stepped up to assist Jefferson County Health Department with car seat checks and installations for the whole Jefferson county area. In addition to our normal checks we provided 70 seat checks and 32 seat distributions for our county.   As of today we have checked and or installed 743 car seats of which 128 have been provided at a low cost through the Safe Kids distribution program.

For your convenience the High Ridge Fire District has eight certified car seat technicians to assist you with education and installation. Please call 636-677-3371 to set your car seat check appointment. 

If we can save just one child…
