The Florida Department of Health in Marion County hosts free car seat classes. The classes are meant to help families who need a car seat receive one, whether it’s because their current one is damaged or expired or because they cannot afford to purchase a new one. Participants must be receiving some type of aid, cash assistance, WIC, SNAP or Medicaid to attend and receive a car seat.
Class attendees will learn about car passenger safety issues, such as the physical impact of car crashes, choosing the right car seat and the proper ways to install car seats. At the end of the class, participants will apply their learned knowledge to install the new car seat in their car. A certified technician will be present to ensure the car seat is correctly installed.
Classes will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month in the Department of Health in Marion County’s Auditorium (1801 SE 32nd Ave., Ocala). Class dates for 2021 are: July 15, Aug. 19, Sept. 16, Oct. 21, Nov. 18 and Dec. 16. Attendees must pre-register. To attend an upcoming car seat class, call 352-644-2751.
