A Bay County organization wants to help first responders better help our parent's most precious cargo.

The Panama City Woman's Club welcomed in police and fire departments from around Bay County.

It was all to kick-off the "We Have a Little Emergency" or "WHALE" program, it's an effort to put stickers on car windows on car seats letting first responders know more about the child sitting inside.

Information about the child such as next of kin and any medical issues is placed on the back of the car seat.

Sgt. Marc Tochterman from the Bay County Sheriffs Office has been to many accidents and believes that knowing more about the child makes a big difference

"Their is nothing worse then holding a child you have no idea what there name is what kind of problem they might have what kind of medical issues that they my be going through It will make a big different", says Tochterman.

If you would participate in the "WHALE" program, packets will be given out at "Cops for Kids Day" at Arnold High school next Saturday from 10 am till 2 pm.
