A project in connection with the Kiwanis International and Kiwanis Ohio Division carried out by the Bowling Green Kiwanis Club. C.H.A.D. badges are identification badges put on car seats and booster seats for children. The badges help police, rescue workers, and hospital staff learn important information about a child in an emergency if there is no adult able to supply the necessary information. Since children must be in car seats or boosters until they are 4 feet 9 inches or 80 pounds, these badges prove to provide valuable information in uncertain and scary emergency situations for children.
Please fill out the form in the badge clearly and in blue or black ink. A second form is provided in the event
that the information changes or that a different child is in the seat.
C.H.A.D. badges should be placed on a child’s car seat or booster seat where
rescuers can easily find them, but where juice and other liquids cannot smear
them. The badges should NOT be in a
position to be easily read by the casual passerby.
After affixing the badge, please remove extra string so it does not cause harm
to the child or remove the string all together and tape the badge to the seat.
