Child Safety


The Bozeman Fire Department has shift personnel trained in the proper installation of child passenger safety seats. This is a non-traditional free program of the Bozeman Fire Department, but one that has been exceptionally well received by the community. Our 24-hour shift schedules and three fire station facilities allow unique opportunities for parents to ensure their child safety seats are safe and properly installed in their vehicles. This program is another opportunity for the Department to directly connect with our customers to help make a safer community.

4 out of 5 child safety seats are installed wrong. Could yours be one of them?
Your welcome to stop by any station although scheduling a time by calling 406-582-2350 during normal business hours (Mon.-Fri. 8-5) Helps us ensure someone is available.  We also offer a car seat clinic on the second Thursday of each month at Bozeman Fire station 1 from 10am to 2pm. To register for this event please call 406-582-2350, your childs safety is important to our firefighters so please stop by for assistance.

Bozeman Fire Department partners with Child Care Connection on child safety seats. Visit their web site.
