The Denver Fire Departments strives to provide the most current and up-to-date information about numerous fire safety conditions. In providing this information, we hope to bring a safe environment whether it is at your home of residence, place of work or at any indoor/outdoor event. We hope this information is helpful.


Colorado law requires that all child passengers must be properly buckled up and restrained while riding in a moving vehicle. Car seats or booster seats are required for younger/smaller children.

This CDOT Child Passenger Safety Colorado Law Flier has an easy-to-follow chart with the requirements. For more information about the Colorado Child Safety law visit their website.

The Denver Fire Department does not perform car seat safety checks. Please visit the CDOT page for resources and videos.
