The Lions ‘Message in a Bottle’ is an Emergency Information Scheme
It simply directs the emergency services to information stored in a plastic bottle which is kept in the fridge; vulnerable people or those with a medical condition enter their details on the form inside the bottle. It will include a photograph, health details, emergency contact, doctor, whether there are pets that need looking after and much more which will assist the Emergency Services.
It will save the Emergency Services valuable time identifying you and your emergency contacts. By telling whether you have special medication/allergies or not, it is a potential lifesaver and provides peace of mind to users and their friends and families.
The bottles, message forms and service are free of charge to the public and are funded by the Lions Clubs.
