Emergency Data Device

Australian Rotary Health is promoting sales of an Emercency Data Device as a service to the community. The device is carried on a keyring or similar and stores vital medical information of the carrier and relatives. The information can be accessed by paramedics, doctors and emergency department staff in the event of an accident/emergency. This allows the medical teams to apply the correct procedures quickly, which can prevent long term injuries and even death.

The device would make an ideal Christmas gift and may save a life. It is especially relevant for anyone who lives alone. Cost of the device is $20, part of which forms a donation to Australian Rotary Health. The device is available through the RC Karrinyup Contact Us page.
