Emergency Card

Paramedics have said: “Everyone should have one.”

It takes minutes to create and could save valuable minutes in an emergency.

In case of emergencies, medical card

This card communicates your medical needs, even if you can’t.

In an emergency, this card informs responders and paramedics of vital information about your health, medications, allergies and who to contact in an emergency. It ensures personalised care and treatment based on your medical needs and reduces the risk of health complications. 

As a caregiver your card can identify that someone relies on you and provide vital information about your caregiving role.

Don’t wait for an accident to happen – be prepared!
