Child Passenger Safety Program

The  Child Passenger Safety Program: 
The Marshfield Fire & Rescue Department has  partnered with Safe Kids Wood County to provide the Marshfield community with  the child passenger safety program that centers on child injury  reduction. The  program is designed to assist parents/caretakers with the proper installation of  car seats in their vehicles. When installed and used correctly,  child safety seats and safety belts can prevent injuries and save lives. Child safety seats can reduce fatal injury by up to 71 percent  for infants and 54 percent for toddlers (ages 1 to 4).
If you have  questions regarding the proper installation of your seat you should contact the  Marshfield Fire & Rescue Department at 715/486-2094 to set up an appointment  with one of our certified technicians.


The  department has three certified technicians who have been certified by Safe Kids Worldwide using the National Highway Traffic  Safety Administration Curriculum. Our technicians are:

1.   Firefighter/Paramedic Brian  Barnes 
2. Firefighter/Paramedic Pete  Winistorfer
3. Firefighter/Paramedic Jonathan  Altman

Our  technicians are on each of our three shifts to ensure that we have a technician  available for you when you need assistance. We ask that you call us in advance  to ensure that we have a technician on duty. In the event we do not have a  technician on duty we will have a technician contact you to set up an  appointment.
