The City of Greenfield Health Department has recently received a car seat grant from the Wisconsin Bureau of Transportation. This grant allows the health department to give car seats to families that qualify. The City of Greenfield Health Department has partnered with the Greenfield Fire Department to better serve Greenfield residents and ensure the safety of the children in our community.
Those interested must call ahead to make an appointment and verify qualification with the Greenfield Health Department or Greenfield Fire Department.
