What is the Message in a Bottle ?
This scheme is free to the user. Whilst it is focused on the more vulnerable people in our community, anyone can fall downstairs or have a car accident, so this scheme can benefit anyone, including you. As a minimum it will save the Emergency Services valuable time identifying you and your emergency contacts. By telling whether you have special medication or allergies or not, it is a potential lifesaver and provides peace of mind to users and their friends and families.
As the name suggests, the personal information is kept in a bottle. The bottle is plastic,with a push fit lid, and is big enough to hold the necessary information. The bottle is then kept in the fridge, where the emergency services will expect to look for it in the event of being called to your home. They will be alerted to your membership of the scheme by two labels which are unique to the scheme. One is fixed to the back of the front door (or the door most used to access the premises), and the second is attached to the door of the fridge.
