When we interview EMTs and other first responders for the Lauren’s Hope blog, it’s usually to get their front-lines perspective on what works best in an emergency when it comes to medical alert jewelry. For instance, a firefighter we interviewed explained that medical condition tattoos are generally quite ineffective because EMTs simply don’t look for them, they’re hard to see in some scenarios, and so many people have tattoos that a medical tattoo simply would not stand out. Others have explained that having your child wear an ICE (In Case of Emergency) ID is a great idea even for kids without medical concerns because kids don’t carry identification cards, and having that ICE information handy enables faster parent and caregiver notifications in an emergency.
