My Road ID helped the paramedics save my life…

by ROAD iD Staff May 21, 2021

One day recently, I was at the local doctor’s office for a minor ear issue. Their records reported that I have a severe allergy to Penicillin, and I even discussed it with the doctor to determine what antibiotics I would need. Later, I took a dosage on my way home after I picked it up from the pharmacy.I wasn't home for more than 15 or 20 minutes when I realized I was having an allergic reaction to the medicine. I immediately dialed 911. 

When the paramedics arrived, I was not doing well. I was having severe issues, but they recognized my Road ID and knew straight away -- even without words -- what was going on. My Road ID allowed them to quickly begin administering shots to counteract the allergic reaction. I was rushed to the ER and stabilized over the next couple of hours. In the end, my ID helped the paramedics and ER team save my life. 

I think your service is amazing. Thank you for helping keep me safe. Please tell your entire staff thank you from me. 

Sincerely, your forever faithful customer.
