"E.R.I.K." ERIK Kit


E.R.I.K. is an Emergency Response Information Kit developed by a community Advisory Council, established in response to community concerns regarding the availability of adequate information in emergency situations. All area emergency groups have endorsed this program. Once completed, the kit provides the necessary information for emergency personnel to respond quickly to your situation.

WHO SHOULD USE THE KIT?

The kit is ideal for seniors, chronically ill persons, those who live alone or who have caregivers, and others who have speech difficulties or communication bathers. You may also want to take a copy of E.R.I.K. and your complete Health Care Directive with you when you are away on a trip. It is important to update the information form as your information changes.

WHAT DOES E.R.I.K CONSIST OF?

  • A health information form, which a health care professional, a pharmacist or your family may assist you with.
  • A place to insert your Health Care Directive or Living Will, if you have one. A form is enclosed if you wish to make a Health Care Directive with your Doctor and family.
  • A blue organ donation card, if you wish to complete it.
  • A sticker like the one illustrated above to stick on your front entrance.
  • A plastic folder with a magnet to hold all the information place on the front of your fridge.
