Crowded beaches, holiday resorts and road trips for the family – festive season is upon us and everyone should be wearing their ICE-TAGS ID!
Let’s start with recent media reports focussing on the high incidence of deaths and injuries caused to children who are not strapped up safely in their seatbelts while travelling in a car, especially with the start of the festive season and roads that are even more congested than usual.
Fact: passenger deaths in children are the 4th leading cause of unnatural deaths in South Africa, not to mention all the injured children that suffer injury or disabilities on a daily basis. One last statistic: 84% of children in South Africa are NOT buckled up!
How can anyone in the 21st century not get that prevention is so much better than the trauma that follows the injury or loss of a child, it is our sole responsibility as parents and caregivers to make sure that every child is strapped in every time they get into a car, even if it’s just to go to the corner supermarket – 70% of accidents happen closest to home!
ICE-TAGS South Africa may not be able to do anything about ensuring that our children are protected while they are travelling in cars, but, they are dedicated to saving the lives of our children and every South African in the way that they know best, with ICE-TAGS (In Case of Emergency)!
None of us really want to even consider the worst case scenarios, but, the truth is that if you are involved in an accident and unable to speak for yourself, let alone for your child, no one will know who you are in the immediate aftermath, nor will they know whether you have any life threatening allergies or health conditions.
Wearing an ICE-TAGS emergency medical bracelet or allergy bracelet, has the same effect as wearing a safety belt does, it gives emergency personnel important information that could save your life and the lives of your children.
Even if your children do not need an ICE-TAGS allergy bracelet for children, it is essential that they have some form of ID bracelet so that medical personnel or bystanders have emergency contact information they can use to alert family or friends in case of an emergency.
ID Tags for children are always important, however, when it gets to the festive season, beaches and holiday destinations become crowded, and even the most vigilant parent need only look away for the moment it takes for a child to get lost among the crowds.
If you or your child and anyone else in your family suffers from severe allergies, then it is essential that they wear an ICE-TAGS allergy bracelet for kids or for adults, it is a simple case of being well armed and protected in case of an emergency.
ICE-TAGS medical bracelets for kids and medical bands or allergy bracelets for kids are all designed to make a fashion statement to suit all tastes, and to save lives at the same time, and they make it easy to find an ICE bracelet or ICE allergy bracelet for the whole family at ICE-TAGS South Africa, and to join their passionate drive to save lives!
If you and your family are taking a road trip to your holiday destination you will more than likely do a thorough check on the tyres of your car in an effort to ensure that your family will be safe on the road, but, without a safety belt and the safety net of ICE-TAGS emergency tags or bracelets, the tyre and oil check will be meaningless!
The passionate team at ICE-TAGS implores you to enjoy your festive season safely, knowing that you and your loved ones are protected on every front, from seat belts to emergency ID tags for kids and adults, or allergy bracelets for kids whose lives could be at risk without the proper information available to emergency and medical personnel!
