(5/15/2019) - The Montcalm County Sheriff's Office is launching a new program to help emergency responders identify children and their medical needs.

The WHALE program stands for "We Have A Little Emergency." A kit includes a label for children's car seats providing a name, age, medical information and emergency contact.

The information is especially useful after a crash if the parent or guardian becomes incapacitated.

Last year in Montcalm County, 14 people were killed and almost 500 hurt in car crashes.

Residents can pick up a free kit at the sheriff's office in Stanton.
