Marshall County Sheriff Phil Sims said, “It’s for in case you have someone involved in an accident or whatever it is, and they can’t communicate. They can’t communicate what’s wrong with them or if they have any kind of medical conditions or allergies or so forth. That’s basically what it’s designed for.”

Anyone can signup for the program. The forms and stickers can be picked up from the Marshall CountySheriff’s Office.

Deputies will also be out in the community passing the forms out. Follow their Facebook page to see where they will be set up in the future.
