My alert bracelet says "REFORMAT MY HARD DRIVE"

I would definitely wear it in a different location if you are serious about using the tools. Do you have a card with all your information in your wallet? As ***** and their interactions get more complex; it's not enough state the type of ailment you have but how you're being treated. This includes herbal remedies.

Just read and understand what I said or you may as well not have anything to warn the first responders of your medical problem. They are NOT going to look for anything except a bracelet or necklace until it's too late to matter.

Don't believe me- ask your local EMT's, firefighters and ER doctors for yourself. They will tell you the exact same thing. Vary from that at your own risk, and that's a bigger risk than I'd take.

When operating in a store, you could use it on a pendant nestled into your clothing or slide the ID logo into your wallet, then put it back again on when you keep a store.
