Medic Alert

 

MedicAlert® (Registered Charity No: 233705) saves lives and Bridgend Lions Club is pleased to be a sponsor of theirs. We actively support and promote the organisation within the community and where possible provide people on limited income with sponsored memberships.

Medic Alert Emblem

MedicAlert® in the UK was originally a special project of the British Isles & Ireland Lions Clubs who brought the idea over from the US in the early 60’s. Today, MedicAlert® is a non-profit making, registered charity that works independently with the invaluable support of the Lions.

MedicAlert® is the only non-profit making, registered charity providing a life-saving identification system for individuals with hidden medical conditions and allergies. This takes the form of body-worn bracelets or necklets (known as MedicAlert® Emblems) bearing the MedicAlert® symbol on the disc and supported by a 24 hour emergency telephone service.

Each member receives an Emblem that is engraved with the wearer’s main medical condition(s) or vital details, a personal ID number and a 24 hour emergency telephone number which accepts reverse charge calls that can access their details from anywhere in the world in over 100 languages.

This will assist the emergency services in retrieving quickly details of medications as well as next of kin details.

Information and applications for the Medic Alert scheme can be obtained by contacting us or by visiting the Medic Alert Site
