What should I have engraved on my Emergency ID?
Your most urgent medical and emergency information, including your I.C.E (In Case of Emergency) contact phone numbers.
All Emergency ID is engraved in clearly visible BLACK LASER text (as shown below).
Capitalise your SURNAME, so it is clear which is your surname, emergency services often do this to differentiate between first and surnames. Eg. Garry GRAHAM.
Feel free to use clear abbreviations eg T2 Diabetic or T2 Diabetes, instead of the full word of Type 2 Diabetic.
NO Morphine with NO capitalised to make it very clear they can’t have morphine, as opposed to just Morphine – as this may mean they are taking morphine.
Or you could word it as ALLERGY to Morphine. ANAPHYLAXIS to Morphine. Or even say how Morphine affects you ie Morphine = Skin Rash.
All items are custom engraved to suit the wearer’s needs, FREE of charge. We recommend you have engraved your most URGENT information as a 1st priority. Keep engraving short, clear and simple as a great IMMEDIATE & instant reference.
How much can be engraved on each item depends on your chosen style – some styles have more space to engrave than others, engraving spaces available are listed on each style.
I.C.E – In Case of Emergency
We recommend you have engraved an I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) phone number on the back of your item. IE who you want to be called in an emergency. If you can fit the relationship to you into the ICE we recommend you do e.g ICE Sister 0363811223. Their relationship with you is more relevant than their name.
