The Message is spreading

What is ‘Message in a Bottle’?

Message in a BottleAbbreviated to MIAB, it is a simple piece of paper asking pertinent questions that contains vital information about you, directed at the Emergency Services. This allows them to make quick and accurate decisions on what action to take at the point of contact, which could save your life in an emergency at home. A white plastic bottle containing a form containing vital information about you that could save your life due to the speed with which the Emergency Services could respond to your individual needs.

The bottle is placed where the Emergency Services are trained to look, in the refrigerator door. A green cross sticker is placed on the inside of the main house door, or where it is considered would be most obvious and another sticker on the door of the fridge.

The information provided should include where you keep your medication and latest prescription, contact details, major medical conditions, personal doctor and anything considered necessary that would need attention in those first critical moments.
