Do you use the WHALE car seat identifier cards? I have them all filled out and ready to go into my carseat, but I am wondering how many people know about them? I hadn't heard of them until I went to a carseat safety fair recently.
so it is a piece of cardstock about 2X5 that you write down the child's critical information and attach a current picture of the child. You then tape this to the underside of the carseat. Also you attach a sticker to your car window and bumper that has the logo "WHALE" which is suppose to alert emergency workers that this child has information attached to his/her carseat. This is in the unfortunate event that the adult(s) driving the car is unconscious. It sounds good, but I got the feeling it wasn't something well known yet?
The firefighters and paramedics around here are trained to look for them. I was told to always keep it mostly under the cover, sticking out enough to be found but hidden enough so a passerby can't get your child's info.
