The Emergency Response Information Kit ( E.R.I.K.®) is an important tool to support individuals during a medical emergency. This kit is ideal for seniors, those living alone, and those with communication barriers.
Once completed, the kit is placed on the fridge and the E.R.I.K.® sticker on the front door.
This kit provides the necessary information for emergency personnel to respond quickly to the situation when the individuals are unable to communicate for themselves.
E.R.I.K.® is a registered trademark developed by the former Boni-Vital Council for Seniors in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in response to community concerns regarding the availability of adequate information in emergency situations.
The kit contains:
An E.R.I.K.® information sheet
A Health and Medication form
A Manitoba Health Care Directive form
A Sign up for Life Organ Donation Registration card
A red E.R.I.K.® sticker to be placed on the front door
Business card for the local Seniors Resource Coordinator
Optional French and Hard of Hearing stickers upon request
Contact your local Seniors Resource Coordinator for more information, to book a presentation or access kits.
