Belk Funeral Home offers free life-saving app
Belk Funeral Home has announced that it is investing back into the community to promote saving lives.
“We recognized a very unique opportunity to assist our local first responders through an ingenious marketing initiative that could help save lives,” Belk officials said.
The funeral home asks that you download the Vital ICE (In Case of Emergency) app, from either the Apple App Store or Google Play, for your smartphone and enter in their code: #2824.
Belk Funeral Home is making this potentially life-saving app available for free to download in the community.
They ask that you take a few minutes to download the Vital ICE app and fill in the information so that you are prepared in case of an emergency.
This app is available to the entire community, regardless of age.
Questions about the app can be answered at www.vitalboards.com/vitalice.
In 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.
