Do you know about the Ohio Next of Kin Database that was launched 1xbet tz on September 8, 2008?  Ohio is one of the first states in the US to offer this service to its residents.   Any holder of a valid Ohio driver license, temporary permit or State ID card will now have the option of providing the name and  contact information of a person they wish to be notified in the event the individual is involved in an emergency and is unable to communicate.

Why is this important?  The law was created because the co-founders of MyEmergencyContactInfo.org lost a family member in a car accident.  It took seven long hours for law enforcement to locate a family member, even though they used every tool available to them parimatch tz app download.

An Introductory Letter

MyEmergencyContactInfo.org is an educational program offered by ParentGrief, a non-profit corporation of Ohio.  The organization was formed by two sisters who had received the phone call that nightmares are made of.  They each learned that their children had died in an accident parimatch apk.

Channeling their grief into action they formed ParentGrief in 2007. Their first challenge was to find a faster way for law enforcement to locate family members after an accident.  It took law enforcement seven long hours to locate Linda after her son’s accident.  First responders have only the address on the drivers license to find family members.  Is someone always there?

Working with lawmakers and the Ohio BMV they passed House Bill 392 which was signed into law by Governor Strickland on May 1, 2008.  On September 8, 2008 the Ohio Next of Kin Database was launched by the BMV.  Ohio is one of the first states in the US to offer this service to its residents.   Any holder of a valid Ohio driver license, temporary permit or State ID card will now have the option of providing the name and  contact information of a person they wish to be notified should they be  involved in an emergency.

The intent of our organization is to provide education about the Ohio Next of Kin Registry to all citizens in Ohio.  We will:

·         Hold educational seminars at Ohio high schools and civic organizations

·         Host a booth providing educational information of the Next of Kin Database at health fairs, community events, corporate and association events

·         Bring laptops to sign people up on the spot

·         Provide forms and educational material as a “take away”

·         Communicate with Ohio employers about the importance of informing their employees about the Ohio Next of Kin Registry 

·         Collaborate  with Ohio public service agencies to provide educational materials for their client base

We look forward to working with you.

Sincerely,

Linda Wuestenberg and LuAnn Grover
