About MedicAlert

abt-slider2
abt-sl1
 

MedicAlert didn’t start in a boardroom.

In 1953, a teenage girl named Linda Collins cut her finger badly. The hospital gave her a tetanus shot, but Linda had an allergic reaction and went into anaphylactic shock. She almost died. Her terrified parents, Dr. and Mrs. Marion Collins, began attaching a note about her antitoxin allergy to her coat whenever she had to leave home.

Eventually, they had a silver ID bracelet custom-made for Linda with her medical needs engraved. As more people began discovering how rapid access to medical information could save lives, the Collins family project eventually grew into a charity; and their living room headquarters became a worldwide network.

our-history

MedicAlert Foundation Canada has protected over 1 million Canadians since 1961. It’s the only medical ID bracelet that supports Canadians with 24/7 notification of loved ones, and a special hotline for paramedics, police, and emergency responders to get access to a subscribers detailed medical profile.

Help us save lives.
