This Smart Car Seat Trick Could Keep Your Child Safe in Case of an Accident

As any parent who's ever gotten behind a wheel knows all too well, accidents can occur at any time. That's why we all take certain precautions to keep our loved ones as safe as can be, like having children's car seats installed properly. Now, a fire department in Rose City, Michigan is encouraging parents to go a step further to support emergency personnel and protect their little ones. On Sunday, March 4, the fire department shared two photos in a Facebook post: one of a car seat and another is of a slip of paper with a child's name, date of birth, medical conditions, and emergency contacts. "Way too often do firefighters come upon a car wreck with child(ren) in the car who are too young to have any info and parents are unconscious," the fire department. "It takes two minutes of your time to write out child's name, DOB, parents' names, DOB, emergency contacts, and any medical conditions, any meds your child is on, and even 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." The post inspired one mom named Alexis Copas immediately. Copas tweeted, "Saw this on FB & wanted to share it here!! As soon as I read this, I made one to stick on my child’s car seat."   Other parents soon weighed in, saying how smart the tip is.  It's heartening to know that, thanks to these viral posts, so many more parents will be getting on-board with this precaution. Taking even two minutes could make a world of difference in keeping your L.O. safe in case of a crash or another emergency.
