TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Police Department and Tampa Fire Rescue are launching their joint public safety initiative on Monday.

Both agencies have come together to help aid families with medical conditions/ special needs with "Operation Helping Hands."

The agencies collaborated on a special sticker that helps first responders recognize if someone has a medical need when responding to a call.

Anyone with a medical condition will be able to register for a sticker through the special needs registry to place on their front door, window or refrigerator.

The initiative launches on Monday.

More details will be provided at a press conference on Monday, Oct. 11 at 1 p.m.
