Would you like your child's safety seat checked for proper installation? For a fitting station visit your region's highway safety page by clicking on the map here or by opening the complete list here.
If a crash should occur, and the parent or caregiver is unconscious or fatally injured, these stickers ensure rapid identification of small children in car seats or boosters in the event of an emergency.
The parent or caregiver is encouraged to fill out the information on the sticker and place it on the right front corner (child's right) under the cushion or center back of the child's safety seat. The two small round stickers should be visibly placed on both sides of the seat. To obtain these stickers email CPS Coordinator, Amy Boggs at Amy.M.Boggs@wv.gov.
