Child Care Alarms for Transportation


Pursuant to Senate Bill 252, child care facilities and large family child care homes are required to install an alarm system in each vehicle used by the facility or home to transport children by Jan. 1, 2022. Alongside the alarm requirements, child care providers are required to continue conducting physical and visual sweeps of the vehicle and maintaining a log. Updates related to the new alarm requirement were made in Chapters 65C-20 and 65C-22 and became effective Jan. 9, 2022.
