Monday Mission : Prepare for Emergencies

If you are involved in an accident or other emergency that leaves you incapacitated, who will speak for you? The following tips are quick and simple, and could very well save your life.

  • ICE Sticker : Store the phone numbers of your emergency contacts in your cellphone, prefaced with the acronymn ICE (i.e., In Case of Emergency). As an additional potential lifesaving measure, and an indicator to emergency personnel, affix an ICE Sticker to the back of your cellphone.
  • Wallet Card : Keep a hard copy of your family’s emergency plan and medical history in your wallet. For additional peace of mind, use a self-laminating sheet to protect your wallet card from everyday wear-and-tear.
  • Medic Alert : If you have any potential life-threatening allergies or medical conditions, check out the latest fashions of Medic Alert Jewelry. The once-utilitarian bracelets now have a ton of stylish variations, from dog tags and sports bands to watches and necklaces.
  • ICE Packet : Get ‘hip’ with a specialized USB flash drive keychain that stores all your medical data for easy access by emergency personnel. ‘All the kids are doing it…’ 🙂

So, what about you? How do you store your vital medical history in an easily-accessible format, just in case of an emergency? Do share!

I find the ICEcare solution to be extremely valuable. It is rather comprehensive and yet, I find it to be extremely flexible. With it, you put critical information on your mobile phone so you can benefit from it in an emergency. It also includes first aid and disaster recovery information. And it is free. Check it and thank me later.

I carry an ICE Packet. It’s easy to update and share information. What I like best is the fact that it works on Macs and PCs. It also protects my information via a very cool feature called CustomSecure.
