Children Have An iDentity

Courtesy of the Kiwanis Club of Kirtland
Posted: May 23, 2011

Mission Statement
The Kirtland Kiwanis is sponsoring a program that will provide important information about a child in an emergency, if no adult is able to supply that information. Children Have An iDentity (CHAD) is currently being used in the State of Ohio and 28 other states.

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.

The sticker is not removable and resistent 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.

Where can I obtain a CHAD Sticker?

  • Kirtland City Hall (in the lobby)
    9301 Chillicothe Road
  • Kirtland Community Center
    7900 Euclid-Chardon Road
  • Kirtland Public Library
    9267 Chillicothe Road
  • Kirtland Fire Station #1
    8979 Kirtland-Chardon Road

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.

The Imagination Library of Kirtland is a FREE early literacy program for children, birth to 5 years of age, who live in the Kirtland School District. The program is intended to aid in the development of reading skills and to encourage a love of reading. Each month a new, carefully selected, hardcover book is mailed directly to a registered child’s home. Parents then read with their child as much as possible, showing their child how a book works and associating pictures with words -- all steps along the way to learning to read!

Parents may register their preschool children several ways: on-line at or by completing a registration form at the Kirtland Public Library. For further information, you may also call the Executive Director - Paul Zuberer at (440) 812-7298.
