La Porte County TRIAD is launching a new project
to assist senior citizens. I.C.E., which stands for In Case of
Emergency, is designed to give senior citizens a way of informing
medical, fire or police personnel with vital medical information in case
they are incapacitated and unable to provide the information.
La Porte County
seniors will be given a medical and contact information sheet that can
be placed in a plastic sleeve. The sleeve had a magnet on the back,
allowing the sleeve to be placed on the refrigerator or other available
metal surface so emergency personnel can easily access the information.
To obtain a form, call 1-888-874-8195.
La Porte County TRIAD is an organization made up
of law enforcement and community service organizations. The La Porte
County Sheriff’s Department, La Porte City Police Department and Michigan
City Police Department are three local law enforcement agencies who have
partnered with TRIAD.
