Are you an athlete who runs or rides solo? Do you have children? They can get lost when you're shopping or camping. Do you have a loved one with Alzheimer's who should wear ID? Or, do you have an illness that first-responders NEED to know about?
I've searched and searched for one that I wouldn't mind wearing. I've talked to some firefighters and they said that they really DO look for a bracelet if they find someone unconscious. They said necklaces are not as likely to be noticed, as well as bracelets that look TOO much like jewelery.
Athletes who run or ride solo, should wear I.D. in case of accident, passing out, etc. Include a contact person for a first-responder to call ~ ideally a family member or friend.
Here are my favorite sources:
For the athlete: Road I.D. These wrist bands are good-looking and they are able to inscribe a LOT of important information about you. You can choose the woven band or a rubberized band, both in many color choices.
Many style choices: Hope Paige Designs (my favorite selection ~ see the metal mesh bands in the picture to the right) OR Sticky J These companies have a huge selection (metal, leather, woven metal or fabric mesh or rubberized bands). Good variety for men, women and children.
For children: Star Alergy Alerts This company caters to children. They offer changeable wrist bands kids would like with the traditional metal plates that can be engraved.
