The first thing is that a member of the public would attend to help ? They would naturally call 999 for an ambulance.
What would you expect them to do ? They don't know anything about your child or family member ?
Their phone is locked with a pin, or it got smashed in the accident, or the battery is flat ?
What do they do until the paramedics arrive ?
What they do could mean a matter of life or death ?
When a paramdic arrives how does he treat your child or family member if he doesn't know anything about them or their medical condition or medication ?
Administering the wrong treatment could again result in a life or death situation ?
What if your child or family member is allergic to morphine or has a blood condition that the paramedic is unaware of ?
Make sure they carry an IGuard999 I.C.E, Card on them. They can pop it in their wallet, purse, pocket, handbag, phone case etc. It's also available as a keyring.

The I.C.E. Card / Keyring has a QR code that is personal to them.
Here is how it works.
If a member of the public is the first on the scene and your child or family member has their I.C.E. Card on them they simply scan the QR code with their phone camera and their information will be visible to them. They will see their name, profile pic to confirm it's them, date of birth and next of kin and contact number.
If a paramedic scans the card they can view their name, profile pic, address, next of kin and contact, blood group, medication, health conditions and NHS number so the paramedic can tap into the NHS spine to retrieve medical records.
Sign up now using the menu link above and protect you, your child or family member in case they have an accident.
