Emergency Data (People & Pets)

Emergency Data (People & Pets) is a simple and intuitive app that allows you to store all of the necessary personal and medical information on your iPhone, iPad and iPod.

Brought to you by EMS Options, LLC with Chasing4Life & Sumter Disaster Animal Response Team (DART).

If you get sick, caught off guard by a natural disaster or terrorist type event, it is very important to have your medical information and the information of your loved ones readily available!

It could be critical because:

  • You may not be able to speak for yourself.
  • Emergency personnel may need information immediately about loved ones medical history.
  • You may have to quickly evacuate your home due to a fire or natural disaster and may not have time to gather medications or medical records.
  • You may not be able to contact your doctor or pharmacy for the information, because they have evacuated the area also.
  • Your pets may not be able to stay in the same shelter with you….. Have you identified potential shelters and/or pet friendly hotels?

In those difficult times, it would be next to impossible to accurately list everything about every member of your family and your pet’s information too!

Emergency Data (People & Pets) removes that worry!

Recommendations

EMS Options recommends that you place the “Emergency Data” Icon in the upper left-hand corner of the main page and if you use the “Passcode” feature, activate the screensaver option with an emergency contact name and number. This feature is built into this application’s set-up and will give the emergency contact listed the option to verify who the caller is and provide a Passcode for access to your medical information.

Also, always have a back-up plan for storing emergency medical information. See ICE4Safety for hard copy cards to carry in your wallet or purse and other emergency preparedness information.

CAUTION: ALL USERS SHOULD VERIFY THAT THE EMERGENCY SERVICE NUMBER PROGRAMMED, WORKS IN THEIR AREA. CERTAIN AREAS DO NOT HAVE A 911 TYPE EMERGENCY SERVICE AND YOU MAY HAVE TO RE-SET THE EMERGENCY SERVICE NUMBER FOR YOUR REGION OR COUNTRY.

*NOTE: Apple iTunes is required to be installed on your PC in order to access the iPhone App Store and download the Emergency Data iPhone application.
