An emergency sticker could help parents remember infants or children still in the car, according to authorities in Saline County.
The W.H.A.L.E. ID (We Have a Little Emergency) program stickers are often placed on cars to let emergency responders know there is a child in a car seat in the case in case of an accident. The sticker, often placed in the back window, helps identify children who are too young to provide helpful information during an emergency.
But Dep. Scott Trembley, Saline County sheriff's department, wants parents to use the sticker as a reminder that children may still be in the back seat.
"I think that could make the difference," he said. "The difference between a child getting out safely and a child being forgotten in the back seat."
The stickers are free and can be picked up at the Saline County Sheriff's Office, 251 N. 10th, during business hours.
