If an emergency situation comes up, be prepared with the information you need with this Editable In Case Of Emergency card.
Not too long ago, my husband passed out and was unresponsive. I called 911 and, within a few minutes, multiple emergency personnel were in our home. An EMT or firefighter (I don’t remember which) pulled me aside and asked me questions about my husband’s health. It was an emotional and frantic time but, somehow, I was able to give them the information, from memory. At least what I knew.
That situation prompted me to create an In Case Of Emergency Card that could help you relay important information when it’s hard to think clearly.

Thankfully, my husband was okay after a ride in an ambulance and a few hours in the emergency room. Turns out, he was severely dehydrated from a virus. As a reminder to stay hydrated, he has a nice scar where he hit his shoulder as he fell.
