MedicAlert Foundation International and CAP STS Collaborate to Standardize Emergency Medical Information
Date:10/7/2009

cal identification service in 1956 as a way to provide people with a simple but effective method for communicating their medical conditions. Since the organization's founding, MedicAlert has provided services and products that protect and save the lives of its 4 million members. For more than 50 years, the organization has relayed vital medical information on behalf of its members to emergency responders so they receive faster and safer treatment. As a result, MedicAlert Foundation has now developed an Emergency Medical Information Record (EMIR) service as its core offering. MedicAlert emblems, worn as bracelets, pendants, watches, or other forms of jewelry, alert emergency personnel to a member's EMIR. In addition to its 24-hour emergency response service, MedicAlert also provides family notification in the case of an emergency and so that members can be reunited with their families. For more information visit www.medicalert.org or call 1-800-ID ALERT (1-800-432-5378).
