I'm a volunteer firefighter/first responder and frankly digging through somebody's freezer would be the last place I would look for any important info. Just had a refresher last month and we are taught to 1st look for some form of medical ID tag. Second is to look for some kinda medical info in wallet. The freezer was never suggested. You can go to http://www.medids.com/free-id.php for a easy to fill out free wallet card you can print out to keep with you.


Rant, mostly aimed at ladies, sorry. If you have a med id make sure it is easily recognized as one. I know you don't want some flashy ugly thing strapped to you but I've seen a number of them that are so small or fancied up you can't easily tell they are not just a piece of normal jewelry. Remember if we are busy trying to save somebody we don't have time to use a decoder ring to try to figure out what is a charm or have important info on it. Also I like the ideal of a USB tag remember not every place is gonna be equipped to read it and some places have rules against plugging outside stuff in due to viruses. Best to still have the info on in your wallet as a backup.
