how MyAlerts! works
When you REGISTER for an account, you'll receive a personalised MyAlerts! card with a unique Personal Identification Code, or PIC.
In the event that you suffer an accident or medical emergency, this code will give first responders instant access to your 'Public Alerts' page, where you can list critical medical information including any health conditions, allergies or medications you are taking that are important to ensure an accurate diagnosis and safe, effective, treatment.
You can update these Public Alerts as often as you wish, and even let people know that you have pets at home that need looking after in your absence, whilst all the time remaining completely anonymous!
the perfect gift. . .
If not for yourself, a MyAlerts! account makes the ideal and affordable present for a loved one. . . perhaps your partner, an elderly relative or a child with communication difficulties. We even include a FREE silicone wristband that will alert medical professionals to look for the card in an unresponsive patient's wallet, phone case, bag or pockets.

To see just how quick and simple MyAlerts! is to use, enter the demo PIC Z6T82Y (illustrated on the card above) to access and read an example 'Public Alerts' page!
we're easy to find. . .

The fundamental aim of MyAlerts! is to make first responders aware of any existing health issues you have, or medications you are taking, which may affect their treatment choices in the event that you suffer a medical emergency or accident.

why we hide some content.
There are times when we'd like to explain things in greater detail. . . but too many words on the page would make the site unuseable (especially on mobile devices with a limited screen size). Hence this hidden 'bonus' content, which only appears on request and will disappear again as soon as you move away!
