EmergencyContacts.com today announced the addition of a living will and other family document storage feature to its emergency information service. In addition to storing emergency contacts and medical information, customers may now include living wills, childrenÂs fingerprint images and other important family documents for easy access in an emergency. The $4.95 per year document storage option is available to new Emergency Contacts members free for the first year. Details are available at http://www.emergencycontacts.com.
ÂPeople are preparing living wills in record numbers since the Terri Schiavo case highlighted the issue,Â says company spokesman Valerie Nay. ÂStoring these and other critical documents online in our secure database ensures these documents are easily updated and always available in emergency situations. This new option is a natural extension of our service and gives our members the ability to keep all of their emergency information in one safe place.Â
In addition to storing permanent documents, members can use the feature to temporarily upload copies of passports, itineraries and other travel related documents, making them accessible anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
EmergencyContacts.com members complete a profile including a list of key contacts such as family, friends or neighbors to be contacted in the event of an accident or other emergency. They are issued key tags, windshield stickers and ID cards with a membership number for personal identification.
Hospitals and other emergency service providers use the toll free number on the membership materials to contact a 24-hour hotline. Providing emergency personnel with important health and medical information, specially trained representatives also contact family and friends with instructions and information per the member's profile.
Ideal for parents, pet owners, travelers and seniors, EmergencyContacts.com ensures the necessary details are taken care of in the event of an emergency.
