In a crisis situation, patients, their family members or friends may be too overwhelmed by their emergency to accurately recall personal or medical history or current medications. At times, the injured are found alone, disoriented, unconscious, or unable to speak.
The intent of the Code Amber Alertag is to provide first responders to an emergency situation with this critical information, greatly enhancing their ability to appropriately assess and provide treatment– certainly those of us with special needs. Correct assessment and treatment could mean the difference between life and death.
The information accessible by using your Security Code is available to first responders to immediately become aware of any conditions you have that could affect emergency treatment. All information is optional. You choose what information to make available. Click here to see a sample of the information that can be stored. The information displayed on a yellow background is the information available by entering the Alertag Security Code.

About one out of every four people has a pre-existing medical condition that can complicate emergency treatments.
One hundred million Americans (36%) of the population suffer from chronic conditions.
220,000 Americans make unplanned visits to Emergency Rooms each day.
Of these patients, 13,000 suffer life-threatening delays in treatment because critical medical history is lacking about such conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and drug allergies.
