4. Phone numbers are only used after the emergency since EMT's and doctors are too busy to call.

Paramedics require readable ID Tags with fewer lines.
We spoke to paramedics and EMT's all across America and they told us they want larger text and fewer lines so they can easily read your ID Tag... "at night, in the rain and with a flashlight". If it doesn't pass that test, it's useless. After all, they only have seconds to read your ID Tag, and can't rely on a magnifying glass!
Our ID Tags are designed to be more readable to save your life.
In response to paramedics and EMT's, we limit all ID Tags to 4 lines and in most cases 18 characters per line (smaller ID Tags are more restricted). This promotes larger, more readable text so emergency responders will clearly understand all of your medical information. See abbreviations to say more, and say it faster!
Because it's important to put the most critical medical information on your medical bracelet ID tag, we provide high quality, "Diamond Etch" engraving that cuts deeply into the stainless steel to provide a long lasting message. For information on ID Plates, go to: ID Plates-Tags.
