New tool for first responders

RIPLEY, W. Va. (AP) - Health officials in West Virginia are hoping a new initiative will help Jackson County residents quickly inform first responders about their medical conditions.

WCHS-TV reports the Jackson County Health Department is offering free seat belt covers that will display personal and medical information that first responders can use during a car crash or other emergency situations.

Known as "Medical Seat Belt Safety Days," the county will provide the free covers on March 26 and 27.
