COMMUNITY INITIATIVE: THe Emergency ID CARD
Scenario 1: My friend's husband recently collapsed at a shopping center. She wasn't with him as she was walking around shopping by herself. People tried to help him but they didn't know where to start as he was unconscious. His phone was locked so they couldn't access it but they managed to find his IC in his wallet so they knew who he was and where he resided BUT at that crucial moment, they didn't know WHO to contact. Luckily, my friend had finished walking around and came looking for him. She saw him laying on the ground and quickly ran to his side and proceeded to get the necessary medical assistance he needed. He's very lucky to be alive today.
Scenario 2: Another friend travelled alone overseas and and collapsed. While she was able to give the names of her emergency contacts and phone password before she became unconscious, her family received so many messages from different parties that they were wondering if they were receiving scam messages. Thankfully, they were able to verify that it wasn't a scam and quickly flew to be with her.
The above scenarios are not uncommon and this is how this community initiative was born.
