The W.H.A.L.E. Program at St. Charles Hospital
(We Have A Little Emergency)
In the event of an automobile accident that incapacitates the adult driver and passengers, the time it takes to rescue personnel to discover important health information for your child can mean the difference between life and death. Why leave it to chance when there is such an easy method to protect your child?
The WHALE Program is an identification and information package for child car seats. The program was created by Connie Day, a caretaker from Richmond, Virginia, who worried about what would happen to the children in her care in the event of an automobile accident.
Each WHALE Package includes:
- Four vinyl self-adhesive stickers
- One information label
- A personalized leaflet
The Information Label, which is attached to the back of the car seat, provides important information about the child in that car seat, including:
- Date of birth
- Medical history
- Emergency contacts
This label is not visible from outside the vehicle, ensuring the privacy of these personal facts.
Two vinyl WHALE Car Seat Stickers attach to each side of the child's car seat, and two vinyl WHALE window stickers attach to the rear side windows of the vehicle. These WHALE logo stickers alert rescuers that the vehicle occupants participate in the program prompting them to look for the information label.
