The WHALE Check Campaign has begun and materials are currently available for distribution. “Contact Us” for more information.
Providing vital information about your child will result in a more efficient rescue effort by emergency personnel. In many cases children are too young to identify themselves or their parents should the driver be incapacitated. Rescue efforts may be delayed if emergency service personnel are inable to identify the child, emergency contacts, or special medical needs. By having this vital information, emergency personnel can better meet the needs of your child.
W.H.A.L.E. CHECK requires the use of three self-adhesive stickers an one information label. The 6″x4″ information label is the most vital part of W.H.A.L.E. CHECK. It provides important information about the child in the car such as name, special conditions and who to contact in case of an emergency. It is important that all information be printed clearly and be up-to-date for the emergency rescuers to read. Place the label on the back of the car seat, and make sure the label is not visible from the outside of the vehicle, to ensure the privacy of your child.
The W.H.A.L.E. CHECK logo stickers are to be attached to each side of the car seat. These will be visible from the outside and alert rescuers that the occupant is participating in W.H.A.L.E. CHECK.
The W.H.A.L.E. CHECK (removable) static sticker is to be attached to the inside of the vehicle. This will alert rescuers at the scene of the motor vehicle crash that the vehicle occupants participate in W.H.A.L.E. CHECK.
