Dan Tag: Information is safety

By Ty Sawyer

Palancar Industries DAN Tag is a personalized emergency medical information sheet for DAN members. This clever and simple device contains all the information an EMT or other medical technician would need to know if you required emergency medical service. This allows them to make quick, on the spot medical decisions that could mean the difference between life or death.equipment tags

The personal information sheet is encased in a colorful, high impact plastic shell that is negatively buoyant and waterproof. The DAN Tag is attached to your BC via a carabiner-style clip. It requires no maintenance, just attach and dive.

One side of your 2104 by 3 inch DAN Tag includes your social security number, date of birth, blood type, drug/medication allergies, name and phone numbers for primary or personal physician, name, relationship and phone numbers for emergency contact, and your health insurance information. The other side shows your name, DAN number and the DAN hotline number.

The Dan Tag is only $7.95. Not a bad price to pay for something that could mean the difference between life and death.
