Medical Attention for Treating Toddlers (M.A.T.T.)
1995, Matt, a six-month old child, was involved in a head-on traffic collision while riding with a relative. Matts driver was left unconscious, and
Matt suffered a life-threatening head injury that required immediate surgery. Police did not know Matts identity and were only able to trace his parents
because police located an address book in the wreckage. Valuable time was lost due to this delay. Matt was airlifted to Childrens Hospital for
emergency brain surgery and later made a full recovery from his injuries.
by this story, a car seat sticker was designed to aid officers in identifying a child should the adults in the vehicle be unable to assist. The sticker,
named MATT, is bright green and is to be placed on the bottom of the child's car seat. For increased visibility, use the MATT sticker along with
an additional label named, LOOK. This is a clear sticker which adheres to the vehicle's window to alert officers to seek out the MATT sticker located
on the car seat.
MATT & LOOK stickers are available to Longmont residents free of charge. Law enforcement agencies can purchase stickers for their departments. Please call police administration at 303-774-4440.
