Governor's Conference

The Pre-Governor's Conference Check-up Event for Recertification will be held Tuesday, August 20, 2019 from 1:00-3:00pm at the Lake Delton Fire Department (45 Miller Dr, Lake Delton, WI 53940). This is not a typical car seat check-up event and no families will be present. 

The intended audience are technicians who do not have access to an instructor within 30 miles and certification will be expiring. You will sign-up for a one hour time slot with an instructor and can potentially be checked off on a maximum of three seats dependent on proficiency. 

Participating techs should come prepared to educate on WI laws, safest practice recommendations, how to tell when a child is ready to outgrow the seat they are in, next steps, and correct seat installation. Please bring your technician manual or any resources you use when helping families.
