Local business supports saving lives

Vital ICE App can be downloaded

PRINCETON — Norberg Memorial Home in Princeton is assisting local first responders through a marketing initiative that could help save lives.

The staff at Norberg Memorial Home asks that residents download the Vital ICE App, from either the Apple App Store or Google Play for their smartphone, or enter www.vitalboards.com/downloadapp into their mobile browser, and enter in their code: 2425.

Norberg Memorial Home is making this life-saving app available for free to download in the community as a way of showing its gratitude for allowing the public to serve them.

They ask that residents take just a few minutes to download the Vital ICE app and fill in the information so that they are prepared in case of an emergency so that their user provided medical information is easily accessible by emergency first responders.

Included is also an Emergency Alert System for seniors, as well as a medication reminder feature that keeps track of all medications. This app is available to the entire community, regardless of age.

In the event of an emergency, first responders can use the Vital ICE app to retrieve the user’s vital information. This information can then be taken on the ambulance to the hospital, or emailed directly to the hospital from the app, where ER staff can further access this critical information.
