Krueger Family Funeral Home urges community to download free “Vital ICE” app
FOR THE TOMAHAWK LEADER
TOMAHAWK – Krueger Family Funeral Home has invested back into the community in order to promote the saving of lives.
“We recognized a very unique opportunity to assist our local first responders through an ingenious marketing initiative that could help save lives,” says a release from the funeral home, which asks those interested to download the Vital ICE (In Case of Emergency) app, from either the Apple App Store or Google Play, for your smart phone and enter in their code: #3808.
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 easily taken on the ambulance to the hospital, or sent directly to the hospital from the Vital ICE app, where ER staff can further access this critical information.
“Krueger Family Funeral Home is making this potentially life-saving app available for free to download in the community as a way of showing their gratitude for allowing them to serve you,” the release states.
The funeral home asks that readers “please take just a few minutes to download the Vital ICE app and fill in the information so that you are prepared in case of an emergency.”
The app is available to the entire community, regardless of age. Questions about the app can be answered at www.vitalboards.com/vitalice.
“Remember, time is of the essence when saving lives!” the release notes.
