To help promote child safety, MetLife of Morgan, in partnership with MetLife Auto & Home® and the National Association of Insurance Women, International (NAIW), are offering parents a unique child seat safety sticker, called TIKE, or “Toddler Information Kept for Emergencies.”
“Our agency is pleased to be able to offer the TIKE stickers to the Morgan community,” said Sue Wamsley of MetLife of Morgan. “There are many instances where parents and guardians need to entrust the safety of their children to a relative or close friend. This sticker allows police and emergency personnel to avoid confusion that could result in wasted time during a life-threatening situation. Having the TIKE sticker `on board’ can provide parents with greater peace of mind.”
The bright red sticker is designed to assist emergency personnel in identifying a child, in the event that an automobile accident incapacitates the adults riding in the vehicle. By placing the TIKE sticker on the bottom or back of a child safety/booster seat, emergency personnel can secure emergency and medical contact information on the child at a glance, without having to waste precious moments.
“The TIKE sticker could prove invaluable in the event of a car accident,” says Sue
Wamsley of MetLife of Morgan. “Hopefully you’ll never need to use it, but, like a fire extinguisher in your home, it’s an important resource to have, just in case.”
Copies of the TIKE sticker are available for free by visiting MetLife of Morgan at 4883 W. Old Highway Rd., Suite A, or simply calling 801-876-3571.
