Car Seat Safety Fittings


Hackensack Meridian Health Jersey Shore University Medical Center and the New Jersey State Police are committed to the safety of our communities. We have joined forces to help to protect some of our most vulnerable members – our kids.

Visit Jersey Shore University Medical Center, a Level II Trauma Center, on the first Tuesday of each month for our car seat fitting station. Our child passenger safety technicians will make sure your car seat is the right one for your child, and help you with proper installation.
