You’ve heard of a medical alert bracelet to let first responders know about serious medical conditions if you’re unresponsive, maybe you even wear one. But did you know that there’s a version for those without serious medical conditions? The company Road iD sells identification products- bracelets, necklaces, dog tags, wrist or ankle bands, plates that attach to a watch or Fitbit band – that you can have custom engraved with your personal information.
Emergency responders are trained to check your body for medical alert jewelry and identification if you’re unresponsive, and a Road iD gives them your essential information in the places they’re most likely to check- your wrist and neck, where most medical alert products are found. Your Road iD should contain your name, birthday, and several emergency contact names and numbers for paramedics to call. Wear it during any outdoor adventures (cycling, running, swimming, hiking, etc.), or better yet, wear it everywhere and know that you’ll be covered if an emergency does happen.
