Orlando, Fla. – January 24, 2009 – In a recent article on his website, entitled “Be Prepared for a Medical Emergency,” emergency preparedness expert, Larry Frank a.k.a. Mr. Prepared™, is urging families and individuals alike to download his free My Emergency Card® from his website http://www.MrPrepared.com.  This downloadable card is specifically aimed at aiding first responders in identifying imperative information on individuals in case of an emergency, especially a medical emergency.  The My Emergency Card® contains information about the carrier including medical information, prescriptions medication, allergies, as well as personal information. 

In the article, Mr. Prepared™ notes “108,000 people last year ended up dying from preventable medical errors, which, is the fifth leading cause of death in America.  Over 93% of those deaths could have been prevented if the victim had been carrying their emergency medical information on their person.”  

Larry Frank a.k.a. Mr. Prepared™ continued, “Over 95% of emergency responders know to look for this kind of important information when treating a victim unable to communicate – crucial personal data such as what you might be allergic to, what your blood type is, what medication you currently take, if you’re diabetic and your doctor and insurance company information.  This card is simply a must-have for everyone!”
