The Lions Message In a Bottle scheme is a simple idea designed to encourage people to keep their personal and medical details on a standard form and in a common location – the fridge. Whilst it is focused on the more vulnerable people in our community, anyone can have an accident at home, so this scheme can benefit anyone, including you. As a minimum it will save the emergency services valuable time identifying you and your emergency contacts. By telling whether you have special medication or allergies or not, it is a potential lifesaver and provides peace of mind to users and their friends and families. The scheme is free to the user.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1 – complete the form and put it into the bottle.
Step 2 – place the bottle in the fridge.
Step 3 – place one green sticker on the inside of the front door.
Step 4 – place the other sticker on the outside of the fridge door.
The emergency services are aware of the scheme and will use the information in an emergency.
Bottles have been placed in pharmacies, libraries and sundry other places around the city in an attempt to make them freely available but in case of difficulty, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0345 833 5765.
