Appeal to Emergency Responders to Check for Emergency Identification Aids

Singapore has seen a growth in the number of cyclists on the island. Singapore Cycling Federation President Jeffrey Goh estimates that there are about 5,000 people out and about cycling every weekend.
The growth has also led to an increase in the number of accidents involving cyclists, with the latest available statistics showing a surge from 500 in 2014 to 635 in 2015.
Time is of the essence in emergencies. Those who recognise that have turned to emergency identification aids such as iDfast to eliminate any ambiguity that could lead to delays in treatment.
We estimate that there are approximately 10,000 individuals in the cycling community alone who actively wear an emergency identification aid on their wrist, ankle, watch, shoe or helmet.
More than 95% of first responders and paramedics in the US look for an emergency identification aid during emergencies.
We are appealing to first responders and paramedics to do the same in Singapore.
