Message in a Bottle

Do you take medication for an existing medical condition?

Are you allergic to any particular drug?

If you were suddenly taken ill at home, who would have this information?

Early treatment can save lives.

 Use the FREE Message in a Bottle scheme

The system is used to record information about you which would be needed by the Emergency Services, such as:

  • Your full name
  • Doctor’s address and telephone number
  • Medical information
  • Next of kin or friends to contact
  • Your medication, allergies
  • Even what pets need looking after

Simply enter the details on the form provided, pop the form in the bottle then put the bottle in your fridge.  Stick the special Green Cross symbol provided on your front door so the emergency services will know! Easy!

You can pick up a FREE Message in a Bottle from these distributors:

  • Many pharmacies
  • Tesco Wokingham
  • Morrisons supermarket
  • Some libraries in Wokingham Borough

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service are also offering them when they make house visits

If you want a bottle but can’t find a distributor, or you need more information about this scheme, please email us or call 0345-8337384

We recently gave 100 bottles to Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service
