THE C.H.A.D. PROGRAM – Children Have An iDentity

The CHAD Sticker

CHAD stickers ensure rapid identification of a child in an emergency. The tag contains a place to provide the names and phone numbers of for a child’s parents, physician, and other designated emergency contacts. CHAD is currently being used in Ohio and 28 other states.

The sticker is not removable and resistant to smearing. The stickers should be placed in a standardized location for emergency personnel to easily access (i.e. under a car seat or inside of a bicycle helmet). The sticker should not be visible to someone casually passing by. Additional recommendations accompany each sticker.

The History of CHAD

The CHAD identification program was developed as a result of a traffic accident involving a child in Springfield, Illinois. Chad, a one year old at the time, was in an accident that resulted in the death of his babysitter. Although injured, Chad survived the crash, but no one at the scene or hospital was able to identify Chad. Luckily an emergency room technician was a cousin of Chad’s and able to contact the family.
