Anyone who has a loved one who jogs, cycles, or does any other hobby alone may find themselves worrying that they could have an accident. If it's you going out and doing the activity, do you think about how others are affected? A new identification service, Cram-Alert, makes it easy to offer you and your family peace of mind.
In the past, whenever I heard a story of someone being involved in an accident I took on the attitude that it won't happen to me, and I'm sure there are many others out there that think the same. But is this really a responsible way of looking at things? No. It's impossible to predict when an accident is going to happen, so doesn't it make sense to always be prepared? Yes.
One of the major issues that paramedics face when called to the scene of an accident is identifying the person who is ill or injured. This is easy if something occurs when you're at home with family members who know who you are and know of any allergies or medical conditions, but if something happens when you're out on a jog with no ID how are the paramedics to know?
Athlete Steve Cram teamed up with Alert ID Group to develop a way of easily identifying people after his brother suffered a fatal accident while on a training run. As he wasn't carrying any ID with him it was 48 hours before the emergency services could inform his next of kin. And so Cram-Alert was created, an identification service originally aimed to provide peace of mind for runners, cyclists and adventurers but that could prove essential to anyone.
The purpose of the service is to ensure that if anyone suffers an accident they can be identified easily and treated as quickly and efficiently as possible. With Cram-Alert people can register all of their personal information including contact details, medical information, next of kin, allergies and more. The person's concise profile can then be printed and carried around, assigned to one of the Cram-Alert products or emailed to anyone who might require it. For example, sports club leaders or event organisers.
It's impossible to tell when an accident will happen but Cram-Alert ensures that everyone can be prepared. If someone comes across a Cram-Alert user in distress they can pass on their information to the emergency services themselves or if the person is wearing a Cram-Alert wristband, contact the Emergency Support Team. This dedicated team will be able to assist in dealing with the situation as well call the listed next of kin to inform them of what has happened.
Putting it simply, Cram-Alert is trying to encourage people to be socially responsible, ensure that people receive treatment appropriate to their medical background and provide peace of mind to Cram-Alert users and their families.
