This is actually a repost, I wanted to put this into it's own thread and get it to stand out a little. This is something I feel is important, especially if you're playing at a field a few hundred miles from home.

This isn't really a part of the Roadtrip series, but it kinda is. Something that's important to me personally, I wanted to pass this stuff along to you guys. So I've got a LOT of links for you guys. This is stuff that you may never need, but if you do, it's a good thing.

Places to get emergency ID's

RoadID : http://www.roadid.com Mostly sports oriented styles. Interactive and static ID's available, bracelets and military dog-tag styles.

MedicAlert : http://www.medicalert.org Fairly generic bands, but very distinct. Bracelets / necklaces available

Medic Tag USB Flash Drives : http://www.medicalert.org Not meant to be worn, but on a keyring or similar. Holds all info on drive.

USB Medical Data : http://www.usbmedicaldata.com Another style of USB portable drive

Other options :

VELCRO PATCHES from MilSpec monkey : http://milspecmonkey...patches/medical If you want a more military style, I recommend these. MilSpec Monkey makes some great patches to begin with, but the medical ones are well thought out as well as functional. Not to mention that they're good mil-sim authentic. They also have blood type patches and some killer medic styles too.

Dog Tags : http://www.dogtagsonline.com/ $7 for a full set
http://www.armydogtags.com/ They have several styles of tags, including WW2, Vietnam, Korean era and many full color styles, for about $15 a set. Good for reenactors and scenario players Plus they explain "the notch" in old style tags nicely.

More info on medical abbreviations and engraving : http://www.stickyj.c...to-engrave.html Check this place out if you're thinking about a tag. You only have so much space to use, abbreviations make it easier to get that info into the right hands.

Very good video Tyger. As a nationally registered EMT I appreciate the time you spent on getting the information out there. Your sources are right about the best kind of tags to use. The shoe tag isn't entirely worthless as EMS (Emergency Medical Service) personnel are supposed to do a rapid head to toe assessment if the patient is unconscious, but it could be overlooked.

The main things EMS personnel need to know right off the bat are any known allergies (food, meds, insects, etc.), any medical history (asthma, diabetic, etc.), and any drugs you may be taking even over the counter meds. For the purpose of the med alert tags you just need to list prescription drugs.

For those of you who may have to carry a prescribed rescue inhaler or epinephrine auto injector (Epi-Pen) please take it with you when you go to the field. Taking two with you would be preferred. You can place one in a labeled outside pocket of your gear bag. The other you can wrap in towels and toss in a labeled pod. If you can only bring one with you please keep it on your person. When you label the gear bag pocket and/or pod please make sure it can be easily identified as holding first aid items.
