Manakee Funeral Home has invested in an app that could potentially help save lives.
The funeral home asks residents to download the Vital ICE (In Case of Emergency) app from the Apple App Store or Google Play on smartphones and enter their code, #6341.
Manakee is making the app available for free to download in the community. Officials ask that residents download the Vital ICE app and fill in the information so they are prepared in case of an emergency.
In the event of an emergency, first responders can use the Vital ICE app to retrieve the user’s vital information. This information then can be taken on the ambulance to the hospital or sent directly to the hospital from the app, where ER staff can further access critical information.
