Message in a Bottle

msg in_a_bottle

Message in a bottle is a simple idea which allows emergency information to be kept in a small plastic bottle which is easily and quickly found by the Emergency Services in an emergency.

The scheme was introduced in 2002 in Oxfordshire on a county-wide basis, and well over 70,000 bottles have been issued since. The idea was then picked up by Lions clubs nationally. 

The process is simple:

*DNACPR - Do Not Attempt Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation - a process agreed between you, your family and your doctor where CPR is not appropriate - essential guidance for the Ambulance Service to ensure your wishes are followed.

Message in a Bottle is free to the user and is funded by Lions clubs, where organisations become heavy users of the Bottles ie: NHS, or age related charities then a donation is sought.
