Emergency box for your refridgerator

Recommended Posts

We had an open door day at volunteer fire-fighters and we managed that every single or two-person household in our very small village has an emergency box in their fridge.

The idea is that medics and fire-fighters don't have to search for medical data of an perhaps unconscious person. Persons with a box place a sticker at the back of their house-door, a sticker at the front of their fridge and have a box with all medical data in their fridge.

Are their similar solutions at your place ?

Its a brilliant idea, Chattius... specially as the fridge is so well insulated against fire, etc? I'm looking for a container as we speak

The most important reason for the fridge is that nearly everyone has one and that it is easy to find.

The german manufacturer site:

We supported it mainly because in our countryside area are a lot of houses with just 1-2 people above 70 because their children moved to towns because of work.

Also cheaper than buying a fire safe?

The emergency box is mainly thought for medical emergencies, when no other person can tell the docs about the patient because they live alone. Storing medical data in a fire safe together with money and important documents? If it is a good safe, how long will it take to open it if none of the fire-fighters is an experienced bank robber? They won't have the time to try it if it is a heavy fire and if it quickly extinguished... They have to proof that they needed to open the safe.

Doing the box avoids a lot of legal trouble.

I have important documents at my bank safe and a notarized copy at another bank.
