Arrive Alive

The road safety website recognizes the importance of effective and fast identification of accident victims as an essential part of emergency treatment. Many of the victims of road crashes are unable to communicate with paramedics and emergency response personnel and this presents a significant threat to their safety and recovery after an accident.

The identification system which is an integral part of membership of CrisisOnCall is outstanding for more than one reason.

  • Paramedics have immediate access to your personal medical conditions in any emergency for your safety. Members supply details concerning their medical conditions to CrisisOnCall when they join. This alone can save your life. Consider the implications of being given an injection of a drug you are allergic to without it.
  • It is worthless to thieves: Many other forms of identification, such as silver chains, etc. are considered worth stealing in a crash situation. This leaves the injured person with no form of identification.
  • It ensures that you are transported (free) by ambulance to the nearest most appropriate medical facility, depending on your medical aid cover. Would you get the same quick treatment if vast numbers of people were there before you? Remember, it is vital to get treated within the first “golden hour” after being involved in a  serious collision.
  • Would you want your family and closest contacts to be made aware of the fact that you have been hurt in a crash? The CrisisOnCall armband links the victim of a crash with their relatives and friends by phoning the emergency number on the band. Contact details are immediately on hand for any emergency.
  • It is a superior form of identification: Windscreen stickers can be torn up and go unnoticed if a windscreen shatters in a crash, as frequently happens. Cell phones with stored contact details can be flung far from the scene of a crash under impact, and break, leaving victims extremely vulnerable. Wallets, purses and handbags containing medical aid cards can be stolen or flung away under the same conditions. The one day you decide to swap a handbag to match an outfit can leave a woman without any form of identification.

It is relatively inexpensive when the time comes to replace it.

The CEO of SAPAESA (South African Private Ambulance & Emergency Services Association), Oliver Wright writes the following in a letter to CrisisOnCall:
“With the fragmentation of the various emergency services in South Africa as well as the various private and provincial emergency services and hospitals, there is currently a service breakdown in the availability of critical patient information during a medical emergency. As such it is incumbent upon each person in South Africa te ensure that they are easily identifiable to medical staff members during an emergency with life-saving information including medical aid details, allergies, medical conditions and chronic medication.”
