TDH Launches Emergency Alert Decal for Children with Special Needs

The Emergency Alert Decal will be available as a magnet or sticker to alert first responders, law enforcement and other emergency personnel that there is a special needs child or youth in the home or vehicle and communicate the need for additional assistance for a child or youth with disabilities in an emergency situation.

“In the midst of an emergency, it can be critical for a first responder to have immediate awareness of special assistance or medical attention needed to assist a child or youth with special health care needs, Providing this aid to both families and first responders will help to support families and ensure appropriate actions are taken in an emergency for the safety of those involved.”

Tennessee Department of Health Deputy Commissioner for Population Health Morgan McDonald, MD, FACP, FAAP

TDH will be coordinating with partners including health care providers, community advocates, and first responders to distribute the emergency alert resources. Families can place the decal on the front window of their home and the magnet on the rear bumper of their vehicle. The decals will allow families to note information about their child or youth such as medical needs, calming methods, and emergency contacts.

More information about the CYSHCN program and the Emergency Alert Decal can be found online at https://www.tn.gov/health/health-program-areas/mch-cyshcn.html.

The mission of the Tennessee Department of Health is to protect, promote and improve the health and prosperity of people in Tennessee. Learn more about TDH services and programs at www.tn.gov/health.
