What’s in your wallet?

In the event of an accident, an emergency medical information card is invaluable. Being able to provide first responders with a ready source of your medical needs could save your life during the “golden hour” of a medical emergency. If you can’t speak for yourself, your emergency medical information card will.

An emergency medical information card should include:

    • Full name
    • Birthdate
    • Current medications
    • Allergies
    • Chronic medical conditions
    • Emergency contact names and phone numbers

An emergency can happen at any time, so I  keep my emergency medical information on me at all times, not only when I’m cycling.
