My Notification Service (MNS), a division of Notification Services, LLC, is working with travel agents to provide a secure method for protecting travelers during medical emergencies. MNS, relays potentially lifesaving medical information to emergency professionals, while additionally notifying ALL other important contacts.
When an incident occurs, emergency personnel can access a subscriber’s vital medical information through highly-visible ID stickers that can be affixed to both a state- issued ID such as a driver’s license as well as a U.S.-issued passport.
This information, which can be sent to any hospital in 2 minutes or less, can include: personal physician records, pre-existing conditions, allergies, current prescription and non-prescription medications in use, and medical insurance policy information. Such information can save emergency medical personnel valuable time in treating a patient.
The ID stickers offer a toll free number and emergency email address for contacting one of 18 call centers which operate 24 hours a day, year-round. Once notified, the call center immediately relays the subscriber’s whereabouts to the listed contacts. These contacts can include anyone from an employer to a pet sitter.
