Dispatcher-Designed Decals Will Alert Responders to Diabetic Drivers
A Missouri 911 dispatcher has devised a new way to alert people to diabetic drivers. Tanya Moder designed decals that say Diabetic on Board.
The decals will alert emergency responders that a diabetic person could be in distress. It would also help responders distinguish between an intoxicated driver and symptoms of diabetes in a situation where the driver may be found unconscious.
Moder’s daughter is a type one diabetic. She has been handing out the decals near Jefferson City. Some of the stickers will be donated while others will be sold.
Proceeds from the sale of the decals will go toward the purchase of a diabetic alert dog.
You can contact Tanya Moder for information on the decals at (314)330-7506 or click to email.
