Way too often first responders come upon a car wreck with children in the car who are too young to give any information and the parents are unconscious.
This mom, who’s also an EMT, shared a car seat tip that could potentially save your child’s life in an emergency.
“It takes two minutes of your time to write out your child’s name, date of birth, emergency contacts, any medical conditions, any medicine your child is on, and even your child’s doctor, then stick it to the child’s car seat. This helps EMS a ton and can also help save your child’s life,” Kaitlyn Lawson wrote on Facebook.
Any details given can be helpful to make sure your child gets the right treatment as quickly as possible and that your family’s emergency contacts are notified immediately.
Another mom, Alexis Copas, came across this tip on Facebook and immediately made one.
“Saw this on FB & wanted to share it here [on Twitter]!! As soon as I read this, I made one to stick on my child’s car seat,” Copas wrote.
If a piece of paper with a little information on it could possibly save your child’s life someday, it’s worth the two minutes to write out.
