KARS Brochure


























Mackinac County WIC clients, to obtain a WIC Client discount on a new car seat or booster seat, you must present your WIC Verification of Certification (VOC) form upon payment. This is a sample of the VOC voucher.



In addition to the KARS program, the Sheriff’s office and the city police have certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians available to check your child’s current car seat. Studies estimate that over 90% of car seats are improperly installed. The technicians can check your car seat for proper fit, installation and note any defects or recalls.
