Palm Coast, Fl. (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
MyInfo911, when identifying groups in need of their state of the art medical ID card and related products, put boating enthusiasts near the top of their list. After all, boating is one of the leading recreational activities in the US. Every year millions of folks hit the nation’s waterways to enjoy a little fun in the sun, and for many boating safety is the last thing on their minds. Myinfo911 discovered, according to the US Coast Guard, that in 2010 alone, there were some 4604 boating accidents resulting in 672 deaths, 3153 injuries, and over $35.5 million in property damage.
Nearly three- fourths of all deaths were attributable to drowning. In drowning accidents, MyInfo911, realizing that victims are always unable to speak for themselves, learned that the ability of first responders to quicky access the medical history and special needs of the victim, and provide appropriate care based on this information, can make the difference between life and death.
MyInfo911 provides an array of potentially lifesaving products, such as emergency ID cards to be carried in wallet or purse, key tag ID cards to be placed on key chains, and ID stickers that are water resistant and made to adhere to prominent locations on boats, jetskis, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, backpacks, helmets, etc.
The QR ( Quick Response) Code, the latest in state of the art technology, is featured on all the emergency ID products developed by MyInfo911. Should the cardholder be injured in an accident, emergency personnel are provided certain information printed on the card itself, such as the cardholder’s name, photo, year of birth, any prominent medical conditions, and contact information of next of kin. In addition, first responders are directed to scan the QR Code with any smart phone, providing them virtually instant access to a more detailed account of the victim’s specific medical history, including blood type, allergies, medications, and all existing conditions such as seizures, diabetes, heart disease, etc. Next of kin are also notified automatically to alert them of a possible emergency situation.
Started in October 2010, MyInfo911 provides emergency identification cards that use QR codes to provide pertinent medical history information to first responders and other medical providers. The Palm Coast, Florida based company’s cards have the person’s picture, name and QR code on the front and the person’s name, year of birth, emergency contact, blood type, allergies and specific medical conditions on the back.
