E.R.I.K.

The Emergency Response Information Kit was developed in response to concerns regarding the availability of emergency medical information. In an emergency, a patient may not be able to speak or inform paramedics of their condition, medical history, allergies etc. This can delay proper medical care. E.R.I.K. provides essential health information for emergency personnel so they can correctly and quickly respond to a medical situation. The kit is kept in your home and consists of:

  • A Health Information Form which should contain your name, address, health card numbers, next of kin, family physician, medical history, allergies, and medications (your health care professional, pharmacist or family may assist you in filling it out)
  • A place to insert your Health Care Directive
  • Blue Organ Donor Card (not mandatory)
  • A sticker for the front entrance of your house (which alerts paramedics to look for your E.R.I.K.)
  • A plastic folder
  • A magnet to hold the information packet in place on your refrigerator door
