Car Seat Info Tag
Too many times firefighters come upon a car wreck where the mom is unconscious, and there are children in the car too young to speak or communicate anything useful to the rescue team.
Place a sticker (or use a self-laminating kit to make it last longer) on each child's car seat providing information to help rescuers.
Include: child's name and DOB, parent's names, DOB and phone, emergency contact info, child's doctor, any medical issues.
Put it in an out-of-the way place, where it can't been easily seen by passerby's, and on the stationary part of the car seat that you leave inside the car.
You should also attach one on booster seats or seat belts, as well as diaper bags, strollers, backpacks, luggage - anywhere you need important information stored for your child.
Check out this Car Seat Tag on Amazon.
