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.
This 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.|
Message in a Bottle is not solely a Lions initiative, but it is an initiative that Brighton Lions Club has adopted as a means of fulfilling our motto "We Serve".
