Does the fire department offer or install free child car seats?

No. The Fire Department does not offer car seats. If you need a car seat, please reach out to St. Joseph’s Children’s Wellness & Safety Center at (813) 615-0589 to register for a car seat. If you do have a car seat but need it installed correctly or inspected  to ensure that it meets the appropriate standards of the law,  contact (813) 443-3074 or click here for Car Seat Classes.
The Children’s Board Family Resource Centers are located throughout Hillsborough County and offer programs and services to help you obtain car seats and more. They are also connected with St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. See their locations here.
