Well done Wexford Lions.....................Click
We had great fun celebrating the 100th birthday of Wexford's St Patrick's Day parade. Our Lion was a huge hit with the crowd. He's quite friendly but we had him caged just in case he nabbed a few new members along the route.

Message in a Bottle

 

Message in a Bottle is an Emergency Information Scheme. It simply directs the emergency services to information stored in a plastic bottle which is kept in the fridge; vulnerable people or those with a medical condition can enter their details on the form inside the bottle. It will include a photograph, health details, emergency contact, doctor, whether there are pets that need looking after and much more which will assist the Emergency Services.  

As a minimum it will save the Emergency Services valuable time identifying you and your emergency contacts. By telling whether you have special medication or allergies or not, it is a potential lifesaverand provides peace of mind to users and their friends and families.

The  bottles, message forms and service are free of charge to the public and are funded by the individual Lions Clubs.
