Emergency Contact Info, IMPORTANT!

In light of tonight's accident, and having been around bikes and seeing accidents over 30 years, I'd like to offer some advice for all riders:

Keep emergency contact, blood type and any prescription drugs you're taking and any prescription drugs allergies on a small card in your wallet.

In your cell phone save several numbers under ICE = In Case of Emergency.

Give your regular riding buddies emergency contact info to store in their phones.
I have emergency contact info for the 4 people I ride with almost every Sunday, and they have mine.

Indeed. I have an ICE tag laced in my boot and also one in my jacket pocket. Ialso keep 4 numbers in my cell as 1CE. I use the 1 so they are the first numbers in my contacts.

Best idea I've heard, yet. Sometimes phones don't make it through the accident. And a wallet may be hard to find amidst pieces in the dark.

just talked to babygirlgixxer.......

the ICE cards are going to be best bet, dont keep info SOLELY on cellphone. both riders HAVE THIS INFO on thier phone..but both fones were totaled (screenwise) when they went down.

its important as others have suggested that you keep info on your buddies, but not just locked on the phone. more than likely they will get damaged, and become useless.

redunandcy/back-up is key here.

I just got this thought after reading all the posts in the DMC thread... Someone put they had dog tags made just for emergency contacts. I think it would be a great idea to get TAGS ON THE KEY CHAIN OF THE BIKE WITH ALL I.C.E. INFO ON IT!!! You can get that made at wally world for about 6 bucks!

The dog tag idea is the best yet! All the other ones could possibly be lost depending on the crash. Wallets fly, keys fly, phones fly off.

MH Group buy anyone?!

I've been a paramedic for years, and until I just read your post I would have never thought to look there for that information. I'm trying to say that I prob would not have thought to check that or that, that is what its used for. If I had seen your keys, that wouldn't have gotten my attention.

As i am sobering up from all the that happened last night... I might even retract the previous post. I'm just gonna be cheezy and tape a small folded peice of paper to my DL that contains my ICE info. No clue what the solution to this could be!

In the case of last night... this would not have helped. Keys usually stay with the wrecked bike - They were in the ignition. The hospital needed the info to touch base with Charles' family, but no one even knows what wrecker company got the bike. Make any since? You would have to wear them, my key chain idea sucked! Which they also make ID jewelry for that matter, like a medical ID bracelet/necklace. Now that will get a nurse's, paramedic's, or police attention!

Here is a place to order ICE Dogtags.

http://www.medids.com/DogTags.html

I have one laced at the bottome of each of my riding boots. One is my military dogtag with Name, SocSec, and blood type. The other foot has 3 ICE# phone numbers. I like it on my boot bc everything else can be lost in a wreck - phone, jacket, key chain.

You could just go to one of those Dog Tag Machines at wal-mart and print up one. Then it's metal so you don't have to worry about it fading or tearing.

My only thought would be it needs to be inside your jacket or something. If it's on the exterior, depending how much sliding down the road you do, it could be unreadable.

Too many people carry thumbdrives. Most wouldn't think about it. Too be effective you would need to have it stand out and clearly say I.C.E. on it. Not to mention, who says that particular EMS company has MDT's. If they do have an MDT/laptop who is to say there isn't a policy against connecting removable storage (more likely than you think, HIPPA laws place alot of regulation on that stuff)
