Since I started working on an ambulance in Oakland, California I have realized the importance of having proper ID with you at all times. Searching for wallets or other forms of ID at accident scenes is often times very difficult or fruitless. The John/Jane Does are sad and frustrating and so easily preventable.
It is funny how we all feel so impervious to harm...until it is too late. Athletes need to be concerned with ensuring that information regarding their identity, family contacts, medical history and allergies are available to caregivers in case of an emergency. I encourage all athletes and exercisers alike to start wearing ID.
