Car Seat Program
Mille Lacs County Car Seat Program Can Help! Mille Lacs County has three Child Passenger Safety Techs who can provide car seat education and distribute car seats for children birth to age 8, if you have PMAP Blue Plus or PMAP Health Partners insurance coverage. Call 320-983-8208 and ask to speak to someone regarding the car seat program to determine if your child is eligible.
Car crashes are the Number 1 killer of children ages 1 to 13. Let us help you keep your child safe! Visit the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration website for child passenger safety information and videos.
Shaken Baby Syndrome
Shaken baby syndrome is a type of traumatic brain injury that is inflicted when someone intentionally and violently shakes a baby. Shaking makes the baby's fragile brain bounce back and forth inside the skull, causing bruising, swelling, and bleeding; this can lead to permanent, severe brain damage or death.

If you believe a child is in imminent danger, has injuries that need medical attention, or is not safe remaining at home, call 911.
