When we first designed the full color SCUBA BC Name Tag, we had a desire to add an option that would feature an emergency contact tab - one containing important medical and "In case of emergency" (ICE) contact information. Now that option is available for you.
The SCUBA BC Name Tag features a plastic tab that can be engraved with up to 9 lines (20 characters each) of emergency medical and contact information. Our example includes:
- Diver name
- Date of birth
- Blood type
- Drug allergies
- "In Case of Emergency" Contact Name
- Contact relationship
- Contact phone numbers
Other ideas might include the Divers Alert Network - DAN emergency number, medical insurance info,
The tab slides down and fits snugly behind the name plate so data is not visible but is easily accessed by pulling up on the tab. The only visible line is "Emergency Info" that serves to visibly alert others to the location of the information.
Every SCUBA diver should have one of these on their BCD.
