Hi Ray
Yes after seeing the guy fall out of the basket got to wondering just how and what the rest of RVers do if something did happen the DW or themselves.
We do everything that was said and one other. When we check in at a CG we ask for 2 business cards, write the site number and it goes on my money clip [need something to fill the clip] the DW puts in in her wallet. We use to keep the cards, but after awhile just to many.
We a great time. We were in the VIP next to Balloon Museum.
Thanks for all the great replies and I hope everyone have safe a journey.

Contact Info

From the EMS side of things...put the numbers in your ICE contacts if you have them, but also put a card in your wallet with your important info on it -

Known Allergies
Pertinent Medical History (we don't need to know about your bunionectomy)
Special Medications you take
Next of Kin
Contact Phone Numbers
A home address (assuming you have one)
Organ Donor Status

I can't tell you how many times we've carried someone to the ER that is unresponsive - and we don't have a clue who they are or how to get in touch with someone that needs to be contacted on their behalf.

We have it in all our phones. Kids have it Mom or Dad first for ICE. I have my Hubby and he has me first. Now that all being said. It DOES work. I had the misfortune of slipping on a patch of black ice(less than 5ft from my truck) and ended up breaking my ankle in 3 places and dislocating it. When the EMT's got there-they got my phone out of my truck(I'd left it there while taking my daughter to the door for a sleepover) and scrolled right through it to get the ICE number. It made it very easy for them to get in contact with my Hubby. He even beat the ambulance to the hospital. Mine also gives you the capability of listing all your medications-which again they used from my phone. You have to do it-you appreciate having all the information for the people who are helping you, making their jobs easier.

Nell did you give them directions where to find your phone and what to look for? We carry our phone locked, one must know the unlock code to place a call. This is in case we lose the phone no-one can find our contacts phone numbers or run up a large bill. All anyone needs to do is type a phone number into Google to receive the street address and a map to the location.

No, good point I need to do that with the phone. I told them it was on the dash. I just normally keep the key pad locked. I always keep the phone in my front pocket-I'd taken it out that night and placed it on the dashboard because I was going to order Chinese food on the way home.
