MIAB Scheme in Aldridge
"Message in a Bottle" is a simple, potentially life saving scheme.
The scheme has been available across the UK for some time, and is now gaining more publicity via the Lions Club.
Working together, the Lions, Aldridge Chiropody, Aldridge Medical centre, and Aldridge-web.com will launch and promote the "Message in a bottle" service, making it available to local residents, free of charge.
This is a real public service in the spirit of the Lions Motto " to serve the local community", so please pass the message on to friends and family, to make this valueable free service a success!
Availablility and stock of the bottles will be announced on Aldridge-web.com website and newsletters, however you are welcome to contact Alan at Aldridge web by E-mail with any questions or comments.
The 'bottle',WHICH IS MADE OF PLASTIC, (must be kept in the fridge, where emergency services will EXPECT & LOOK to find it) contains a message telling the emergency services everything they need to know to administer the most appropriate method of help, which could otherwise be delayed.
If an emergency occurs in your home the emergency services will look in the fridge for your bottle, and will quickly and easily be able to find out essential information such as next of kin, medication and any special needs.
This scheme is aimed especially at elderly and vulnerable adults but can be used by anyone, AS IT PROVIDES ESSENTIAL INFORMATION.
It works like this. The scheme provides Emergency Service staff with vital details of any illness or allergy or someone to contact should they be called to the home of anyone as a result of sudden illness or personal accident.
Your personal details are stored in your bottle, which is kept in the fridge.
Two small stickers (as shown)
known to Emergency Service staff and other caring agencies, are attached within the house - one on the inside of the front door and the other on your fridge door.
The sort of details needed in an emergency may be a name, next of kin or friends to contact, allergies, regular medications, doctor’s details and medical information.
The Emergency Services are aware of the scheme, will look for the Green Cross stickers on the inside of the front door and find the information in the bottle which is kept in the fridge.
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 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, friends and families.
