VitalBoard Initive to Help Save Lives
Friday, September 30, 2016 : 12:00 AM to Saturday, September 30, 2017 : 12:00 AM
We are happy to announce that Owner/President Thomas J. Deisler is taking the opportunity to assist local first responders through a marketing initiative that could help save lives. The Vitalboards initiative, which is available at the funeral home, is comprised of a write-on-wipe-off magnetic memo board that can be affixed to refrigerators. These useful boards will have a weekly planner, shopping list, note area and important phone numbers section. A wet erase marker with mounting clip will accompany the board, which should be placed on the front of the refrigerator. What makes the Vitalboards initiative unique is that on the reverse side of each one, there is room for each resident to record critical health information to assist EMS / Fire / Police and ER staff in the event of a medical emergency. This “need to know” information could help save a life if the resident is unable to speak or is otherwise incapacitated. Homeowners are instructed to fill out this information as accurately and legibly as possible and place a small weatherproof sticker on or near their front door.
In the event of an emergency, first responders can identify the location of the Vitalboard and retrieve the homeowner’s vital information. These boards can then be easily taken on the ambulance to the hospital, where ER staff can further access this critical information. Remember, time is of the essence when saving lives!
Also, Tom asks that you download the Vital ICE App from either the Apple App Store or Google Play for your smart phone and enter in their code: #1151. Deisler Funeral Home is making this potentially lifesaving app available for free to download in the community as a way of showing our gratitude for allowing us to serve you.
