Paramedic Urges Parents To Put Notes On Children's Car Seats

Paramedic Urges Parents To Put Notes On Children's Car Seats

A paramedic is urging all parents to follow her hack for child car seats as it could potentially save lives in an emergency.

The ambulance worker, known only as Kaitlyn, took to social media in a now-viral post originally shared last year to tell parents around the world to attach a note to their son or daughter's car seat in case of emergencies.

She explained that the note should detail their name, parents' names, the child's age, any existing medical conditions such as allergies or medication they take, and other relevant information so that emergency crews know what to do if passengers are knocked unconscious in a car crash.

Not only will the tip help emergency crews identify the child, it will also allow them to know of any urgent medical information, which could potentially be lifesaving.

"Way too often do emergency crew come upon a car wreck with children who are too young to have any information and parents are unconscious," the emergency worker wrote on Facebook.

She continued: "It will take two minutes of your time to write out your child's name, DOB, parents name, DOB, emergency contacts and any medical conditions, any meds your child is on and child's doctor - then stick it to the child's car seat.

"This helps EMS (Emergency Medical Services) a ton and can also help save your child's life."

The note can be attached using a safety pin in a place where the child cannot reach.

Kaityn's life-saving piece of advice first started doing the rounds on social media last year, but it's resurfaced and is more important than ever.

Parents have praised the hack, with one writing: "Touch wood we never have to be in this situation but this is a very good idea."

While another said: "Something to consider. Hopefully, it will never be needed."
