Many carers aren’t aware of this, but apart from displaying the ‘obvious’ medical information that a first responder needs, an ID card for a someone living withg dementia can be a life-saver. Not only can it hold sensitive information behind a scratch panel, but it can also provide critical instructions on how to contact their family. That seems reason enough for a patient to start carrying an ID card, of course, but there are other aspects to dementia care that make one a real boon. For people with dementia still living at home… ..

ICE For Workers… Really? Yes! Do one or other of these sound familiar? You sit next to the same person every day in the office, and though you chatter you don’t really know each other. Or… You find yourself managing a different set of site workers every week; you can barely keep up with their names let alone any personal details. In either situation, where would you turn for information if someone collapsed? The stricken individual is going to need appropriate, fast medical assistance and will be keen for their family to be..
ICE… what’s that? ICE stands for ‘In Case of Emergency’. If you visit the official ICE website (www.incaseofemergency.org) you’ll quickly see it paints a compelling picture that illustrates the importance of ICE. Imagine this. You’re sitting at home, expecting a loved one to walk through the door any minute… and they don’t. Imagine then calling the police to report a missing person, only to be told you have to wait 48 hours before you can do this. What’s your next step? Do you call all the local hospitals to enquire abou..
An ICEtag? We hear you ask. Really? Yes…or more specifically it’s a Vital ID tag. If you’re the sporty type and you’re regularly out cycling, climbing, or risking life and limb in some other capacity, you’ll know that safety is important. You’ll already be taking precautions to prevent injury – such as wearing a helmet – but there are other things you need to consider too in the event that you have an accident.

The purpose of an ICEtag is simply so that if you are in an emergency situation and cannot communicate then your vital information is easily accessible for first responders and emergency services to find out who you are, who they need to contact and crucially if there is anything they need to be aware of that could help save your life. Here at ICEtags HQ we love hearing from happy customers and more importantly how our product helps to save lives. Last week we received one such story – a story from a gentleman so incredible that his story needed to ..
Here at ICEtags HQ we do believe passionately that you should take every care to ensure that, in the unfortunate event of an accident, that you can be identified easily and quickly and that your next of kin can be identified and contacted quickly. Did you know that it takes on average 8 hours for the emergency services to identify an individual without any form of ID on them – now that is a terribly bad way of using the already stretched resources of the emergency services.

At ICEtags HQ we like to help with all types of requests and this week we had an interesting one from a running club who frequently have new runners join them, at times unannounced, which of course they welcome. They wanted an immediate way to record ‘In Case of Emergency’ contact details for their members and any new runners and of course branded with their running club logo. The running club enquired about an ICEtag for their runners that could be written on in permanent marker and be small enough to be attached to a shoelace. Because we have been printing cards for 18 years w..
If you suffer from a medical condition, it’s important that you keep identification on you to highlight what that condition is in case you find yourself in an emergency situation.

Regardless of the severity of the situation, it can make a big difference to the outcome of an accident or in..

With the arrival of the summer holidays, many schools and groups will be offering children the opportunity of play schemes and activities to keep them entertained during the break. If you are a parent who has arranged this, you are probably feeling relieved they won’t be spending all their time running riot at home! However, there is always the slight worry of whether they are safe when you are not with them. If you are a parent, or someone arranging these events, the most important factor to consider is the safety of those you are responsible for. Childrens ID tags Are a fu..
