Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. This is achieved by providing a wide range of services in more than 50 programs including: women and children’s health, communicable and infectious diseases, planning for and responding to disasters, healthy and safe animals, and protecting natural resources while improving the environment.

Public Health Child Passenger Safety

Road Injuries are the leading cause of preventable deaths and injuries to children in the United States.  Buckling children in age and size appropriate car seats, booster seats and seat belts reduces the risk of serious and fatal injuries.

Low Cost Car Seats

Butte County Public Health Kids in Safe Seats offers a free car/booster seat class for Butte County residents.  The car seat distribution program is available for low income, Butte County residents.

 

Car Seat Fitting Stations

There are a number of car seat fitting stations throughout Butte County.  All fittings stations require an appointment.

 

California Laws & Guidelines

Children under the age of 8 must be secured in a car seat or booster seat in the back seat. Children who are 8 years of age OR have reached 4' 9" in height may be secured by a safety belt in the back seat.
