The Perry County Health Department provides car seats to eligible families who do not have a car seat for their child or whose child has outgrown their safety seat. Parents are trained on how to install their seat correctly into their car by a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician. Seats are provided by the Ohio Buckles Buckeyes Program and partnerships with other community agencies.
A parent or guardian is eligible to receive a car seat if they are a WIC client or meet current WIC income guidelines.
