By  | 

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.

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.
