The paramedical trick every parent should know: how to secure a note on your car seat can save a child's life
- A paramedic went to Facebook to give a warning about the safety of cars with children
- They suggested that details about the child be stuck on the car seat
- This means that in the event of an accident the first responders have details
- It also means that medical conditions are immediately made clear
A paramedic has urged all parents to stick a card on the back of the child seat, stating their name, address, parents' names and any medical conditions.
The reason for the precautionary card is simple. In the event of an emergency, the caregivers will know all the basic information about the child if their parents are preoccupied or unable to tell them.
& # 39; Far too often we come across a car wreck with child (ren) in the car who are too young to have information and parents are unconscious & # 39 ;, said the paramedic according to Practical Parenting.

& # 39; It takes you two minutes to deregister your child's name, DOB, parents' names, emergency contacts and any medical conditions, any medication your child is on, and even the child's doctor and then place it on the child's car seat. & # 39;
The anonymous ambulance officer said that this small addition to the car during a road trip could save a child's life.
With the long weekend of Easter in Australia, this is approaching the perfect moment to confirm the well-meaning card.
Facebook commentators who have seen the post praised the idea for its simplicity and potential effectiveness.

& # 39; Touch wood, we never have to be in this situation, but this is a very good idea & # 39 ;, said a person.
& # 39; Something to consider. Hopefully it will never be necessary, & # 39; said another.
A third added to the conversation, urging those without children to remove the & # 39; baby on board & # 39; stickers that can be purchased for your vehicle.
& # 39; If there was an accident, firefighters might be looking for a baby who was never there to begin with & # 39 ;, they said.
Some wondered if placing your home address was a good idea, especially if the car was taken by a kidnapper or by theft – but agreed that the medical information was important.
