Road ID website : http://www.roadid.com

I know that I mentioned this in the roadtrip videos to an extent. I did order the product, and her's a review of it for you folks. If you've got questions, you can ask me, or them. I do like the product, as it solves a few problems in a nice, elegant way. Not to mention it looks pretty cool too.

Feedback welcome.

It was one of the stock images, and I figure that I may as well be prepared for the worst case scenario, right?

And they didn't have any paintball images. I looked. "Wounded Warrior" project was a close second, along with the paw.

And yes, you're totally a nerd. You hang out on teh intarwebz watching videos of other nerds... wait....

This is a great product. I will have to remember to look for this information format. I sometimes glaze over bracelets as jewelry ( I use that term loosely but with respect).

If you want an EMS provider to thank you. Provide these five lines of information...
Name (First, MI, Last)
D.O.B. (mm/dd/yyyy)
A = Allergies
M = Medications
P = Pertinent medical history

If your feeling daring, your Social Security # would be the Cherry on top of this Sundae.

Another set of very good info is I.C.E.=I.n C.ase of E.mergency
your I.C.E. phone list should be organized by those of your family who have the best knowlege of you and your medical conditions first

if you're on a budget then a 3x5 index or recipe cardwith the above information then laminate it like a standard players ID badge

I should shoe you this then too. http://www.roadid.com/FirstResponder/ It's their website to inform first responders on what to look for, and what it means. It also links to a demo of the interactive system, so that might come in handy.

I didn't have time to put it into the video, but I did like how the RoadID website makes it pretty easy to set up your ID with EMS friendly language. "NKA NKDA", I figure that covers most everything even if it's a touch redundant. Anything more than that I'd suggest people talk to their primary care physician to get input on that. And I listed my big surgery (L4-L5), that might affect how I'm transported or how I injured myself come to think of it.

They actually recommended that a SS# wasn't necessary, but I have that listed in my interactive one for when I'd get TO the hospital. I figure there someone could take the time to actually go online and look it up. I also read some horror stories from people who had an ICE on their cell phone, only to have the phone destroyed when they were smoked by a car or similar. My take is that my phone is IN my car, not on the field, and odds are that an injury will be in the field. But having an ICE on your cell? GREAT IDEA TO DO!!!!

That's one of those shows that I really hope people don't need to ever have to take my advice on. If an EMT is reading a tag with your info on it.... Yeah that's kinda bad.
