What is the MEkey ICE tag?
- It is a USB memory device contained within either a dog tag or wristband that can be worn on you at all times or a credit card shaped device that can be put in a wallet, purse or rucksack pocket.
- All MEkey ICE ID devices carry the paramedic star featuring the staff and snake design - so they are highly recognisable.
- The acronym ICE* is also incorporated into the design. (ICE - In Case of Emergency*)
- MEkey ICE tag is based around bespoke PHR software that allows you to record personal details, emergency contacts and medical information for use in emergencies. This information is displayed when the USB dog tag, wristband or card is plugged into a computer to assist the emergency services - but can only be edited by first entering a unique password.
- MEkey ICE tag can also store documents and files safely encrypted so that only the owner can access them. For example, if you are travelling abroad on you bike or in your car you could scan and encrypt the following
- full travel insurance policy
- vehicle documents (V5 vehicle registration, mot certificate, motor insurance policy, motorbike manual etc)
- copy of your passport
- copy of your driving licence
- plus copies of any other document you might need

In Case of Emergency (ICE) is a programme that allows first responders (paramedics, firefighters, police, mountain rescue, etc) to identify victims and contact their next of kin. The programme was conceived in the mid 2000s and promoted by British paramedic Bob Brotchie. It encourages people to enter emergency contacts in their mobile phones under the name "ICE". The popularity of the programme has spread across Europe and Australia and has started to grow in North America.
MEkey ICE tag is taking this concept one stage further by allowing you to keep personal and medical information and emergency contact information with you at all times to allow first responders access to vital information at the scene.
