LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – When first responders arrive at an traffic crash getting accurate information about the vehicle occupants is critical.

That’s why an updated kid’s identification sticker to place on car seats has been unveiled.

Having the stickers is not new; those have been around for twenty years.

Now the updated stickers have spaces for the child’s name, allergies and other medical information.

There is also more room for the names of parents or guardians, physicians and telephone contact information.

A flap has been added to keep the information from fading and protect the privacy.

This is Child Passenger Safety Week in Michigan.

There are a number of events scheduled around the state that will offer child car seat checks this week.

In Michigan children must be properly buckled in a car seat or booster seat until they are 8 years old or 4 feet 9 inches tall.
