Distribution and checkup events occur every other month at the Hillcrest Station.

In addition, the multiple community seat check events are throughout the year. Call 541-450-6200 for information on the next distribution or seat check event. 

Keep in mind that distribution events are on a first come, first serve basis and they may reach capacity quickly. Arrive early in the event to ensure that we can help and be prepared to wait if there is already a line. Expect to spend at least 30 minutes working with a technician to learn safe child restraint use.
