Here is a little .doc that I made up for your important information. You can either type in your information using a program that can edit Microsoft Word Documents or you can print the paper out then fill it in. Lots of free programs for this on the net. Google has one and you can download OpenOffice also.

My Mom worked in an Emergency Room for over 20 years, she's an EMT, and was a volunteer Fire Fighter for many years so I trust her judgement when it comes to what information is needed by a First Responder. Remember, you may not be able to give this information to someone even if you are awake when help arrives.

I suggest putting this paper in an ID holder around your neck. This should help the suit protect the information. An EMT is going to be opening your suit to check for injuries so this would place it in a very noticable location.

Please feel free to give me suggestions on other information you suggest be added. You can share this with any board you like, but I just ask that any improvements to the paper make it back to me so I can update the files that I distribute. Consider this an Open Source project. :D

After making this post on a few other boards someone posted this smaller version of what I made <see attachment>. I don't care what you use, just please carry some information with you.

Karma biting me in the ass would be me making the document and not using it.

Plan for the worst. I recently helped a rider who slid under a truck after a "minor" highside. If he would have been knocked out from head trama I would not have been able to contact his wife and sister so they could be with him ASAP!

A rider went down on Palomar Mountain a few weeks ago and his wife didn't find out until 5pm because no-one knew her number and the guy's phone went up in flames with his bike. He was in a coma for days so he could not provide any information on his medical history. His wife was at home crying her eyes out in despair because she felt something bad had happen since her husband was so late getting home.

One sheet of paper might be something that saves your life (if you have medical allergies or a health condition) or it might save a loved one hours of grief when they can't find you because your all balled up in a hospital or morgue.

Damn, now I'm babbling on and one. :D
