introduces to you

The C.H.A.D. Program

Making sure all children have emergency identification

 

 

The CHAD safety seat child identification program was developed because of a traffic crash involving a 13-month-old boy named Chad.  The babysitter who was driving was killed.  Chad was injured, but no one at the scene could determine his identity.  Only because an emergency room nurse recognized him could the parents be quickly notified and his injuries be treated.

 

To ensure rapid identification of children in emergencies, parents, and guardians of small children are encouraged to fill out the information on the sticker and place it on the right front corner (child’s right), under the cushion or center back of the child’s safety seat.

 

TPA posts throughout the nation distribute these stickers to local police, emergency medical services, pre-schools, PTA groups, pediatric wards fro newborns, day care centers, and any other organization interested in the safety of children.

 

TPA posts educate emergency personnel in their communities about the CHAD stickers so that they know to look for one when a child is involved in an accident.  There are no TPA posts in CT, so the West Haven Junior Woman’s Club, with the help of Connecticut Junior Women, would like your help to introduce this program in the state.

 

If you would like to obtain a supply of these stickers please call, write, or email tpatxdiv@mindspring.com the TPA.  Costs of these stickers are a minimal, about 3 cents each.  Distribute the stickers with a letter describing the program to your local PTA’s, day care centers, hospitals, police, ambulance and any other organization you feel is interested in child safety.  Thank you for your help.   If you have any questions, please contact Lori or Zenia of West Haven Junior Woman at (203) 982-7003 or email whjwc2003@aol.com or check our local website at http://whjwc.tripod.com
