There are hundreds of thousands of people living with health conditions that are not visible to anyone else, and it is specifically in cases like this that the wearing of an In Case of Emergency Medical Information (I.C.E.) band, tag or bracelet is essential!
Many, many people with heart conditions, allergies, diabetes and other health issues that are undetectable to the naked eye have collapsed in public places, away from heart and home, only to leave first responders and passers-by unable to take the right action immediately, simply due to a lack of medical information or emergency identification.
You cannot tell by looking at someone that they have diabetes, allergies or a heart condition, and there is nothing worse for anyone, including highly trained medical personnel, than to be left with absolutely no information at all about the patient, which includes not knowing who their emergency contact is!
Any family that has had the experience of having a loved one with Alzheimer’s wander off will happily tell you that the best thing you could possibly do is to ensure that they are kept safe if they get lost, is to ensure that they are wearing an ICE-TAGS ID bracelet or tag!
With an ICE ID tag, Alzheimer’s sufferers can safely be returned to their loved ones, and the same applies for kids who get lost! Toddlers and children get lost, and it’s not about bad parenting, turn your back for a split second and your toddler can be out of sight in any crowd, and boy do they move fast once they’ve become mobile!
To them it’s just exploration, they do not yet understand the dangers attached to being separated from their parents, which makes it all the more important that every baby and toddler wear an ICE-TAGS ID band!
Once they get older, you can find your child an ICE-TAGS Kids ID tag they will be more than happy to wear, there is an ICE emergency information band, bracelet or necklace that will catch the eye of any kid, boy or girl, and give you absolute peace of mind into the bargain as they start negotiating the world outside of home, at school, kids parties or school outings and sports activities!
The team at ICE-TAGS often post very interesting articles on their popular (and growing!) Facebook page about the importance of allergy bracelets for kids and medical bracelets for kids, among others, which are well worth reading, and, if you do your own research, as a parent you will see the true value of making 100% sure that your kids wear some form of ICE ID bracelet in South Africa at all times!
In fact, this is the ultimate goal the team at ICE-TAGS South Africa is aiming for that everyone, from toddlers to adults, wear some form of ICE ID bracelet in South Africa, allergy, medical condition or not!
We are not privy to what will happen in the next few moments, never mind about tomorrow, but what we can do is to protect ourselves and our loved ones in case of emergencies, using ICE medical bracelets and ID tags to give each of us a safety net, and possibly gain precious life-saving seconds, simply because the information is available when it is needed most!
