What’s it all about?

The Car Seat ID is a sticker placed on the side of a car seat, to assist emergency services in identifying children in cars when responding to a motor vehicle accidents when there is no one at the scene able to do so.

The sticker also contains 2 emergency contacts, which allows emergency services to pass the information on to hospital staff to appropriately contact next of kin for the child.

How do I use it?

The sticker will be made available at various community events across the country, supported by our Fire and Emergency, Police, and Plunket colleagues. Once you get your hands on a sticker, fill it out alongside the guide below and stick it somewhere on the side of your childs car seat; it should be clearly visible when the door is open (It doesn’t need to be visible through the window).
