*Of course not while driving.. That is Illegal...$500 FINE..YIKES!!
But a TEXT can be a LIFE SAVER...
"The virtual medical ID system lets EMS crews rapidly learn a patient's health history during a crisis. That access can provide the information necessary to treat -- and save -- lives. It also allows family members to be immediately notified, via text, that their loved one is headed to the hospital.
The program, which runs $5 a year, originated in Oklahoma and took off when the state's government made it an optional health benefit for its employees.
The service stores basic health information and up to 10 emergency contacts under a computer-assigned PIN number that's kept on a wallet card with your driver's license, on a key fob or a sticker on an insurance card. And although it's not meant to replace them, it's a dutiful companion to medical alert jewelry popular with diabetics, asthmatics and people with other illnesses. "
