The Marion Fire Department does not offer child safety seat checks. However, the Marion Police Department can assist with your car seats. Please call the non-emergency line at 319-377-1511 for more information.
The best seat is the one that fits your child, fits your vehicle, and will be used correctly and consistently. Make sure that you purchase a seat that meets Federal Vehicle Safety Standards, has not been involved in a previous collision (seats purchased at a garage sale are questionable), and is appropriate for your child.
