Were you GLUED to your TV over the past weeks, watching Le Tour? My wife and I were, to be sure. If so, you no doubt saw the countless RoadID adverts. I think that they were nicely done and informative. I have had mine for almost 2 years. I keep it attached to my back pack when I am not wearing it, and have finally gotten pretty good about wearing it every time I go out for a run.
You should, too.
Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Let me give you Ten Reasons to get one NOW, as provided by the RoadID web site:
1. If you can’t speak for yourself, Road ID will speak for you.
2. Road ID enables First Responders to immediately contact family members and friends.
3. Road ID enables family members to provide additional details about your health or give consent for potentially life saving procedures.
4. Road ID enables hospital staff to locate vital medical records.
5. Road ID can communicate medical conditions or allergy information to medical staff.
6. Road ID can prevent serious delays in treatment by saving crucial time during the “golden hour” of medical treatment.
7. It’s far better to have Road ID and not need it than to need Road ID and not have it. It’s not just a piece of gear, it’s peace of mind.
8. Accidents happen far more than you think they do. Each year approximately 450,000 of us are taken to hospitals unconscious and without identification.
9. Road ID looks good on and makes a statement about your athletic lifestyle – not to mention that studies would probably prove that people that wear Road ID are considerably smarter than those that don’t.
10. Road ID can save your Life. Period.
As many of you know, I am an RN, with previous experience working as an EMT along the North Shore, near Boston, MA. In my career, I have been involved in far too many cases where we as medical professionals were at disadvantage while trying to treat injured athletes.
Please don't be one of 'them'.
