CHAD (Children Have an iDentity) stickers are produced by TPA as a response to a very sad event. A 13-month-old boy named Chad was involved in a traffic accident in which his babysitter, who was driving, tragically died. Chad was injured, but no one at the scene could identify him. To ensure rapid identification of a child in such emergencies, TPA recommends that every infant and child car seat have identification attached.
As an EMT “on call” person for the Veterans Memorial Hospital, in Waukon, IA, Post O member Sara Berges knows how valuable TPA’s CHAD stickers can be in an emergency. She has arranged to make them available at the hospital and two area clinics.
