I’m not one to post press releases on my site, nor do I post everything that is sent my way. I only like to share things that I think my readers would enjoy or that I feel is important information to share.
In lieu of Hurricane Isaac reaping havoc down south I figured that it was very important to share information with my readers about a sweepstakes that EmergencyLink is having where they will be giving away iPhones. Here is the information.
In support of FEMA’s National Preparedness Month in September, starting TODAY (through the end of October) EmergencyLink will be giving away EIGHT new iPhones—one per week—to provide people with the latest new technology to create the ULTIMATE SAFETY DEVICE.
For a chance to win, enter by:
- Signing up for an EmergencyLink account
- “Like” EmergencyLink on Facebook
- Follow the company on Twitter
- Increase your chances by doing all three!
In addition to the new iPhone 5, EmergencyLink is recommending the top five safety apps to turn anyone’s iPhone into the ultimate safety device:
- Pocket First Aid and CPR ($1.99) – American Heart Association; tutorials on CPR
- Silent Bodyguard ($0.99) –panic button that calls the police so an attacker can’t hear
- KidsDoc ($1.99) – American Academy of Pediatrics; know what to do when your child is sick or gets hurt
- Poison Center Help (free) – quickly connects you with the poison center
- EmergencyLink (free) – stores emergency contacts and medical information, creates an emergency screen saver and holds important documents
Some interesting stats that clearly show Americans need to be better prepared in case of an emergency include:
- 89% of Americans don’t have emergency contact information in their wallets and phones
- 86% of Americans have not provided their emergency contacts with all the critical information needed for handling a medical emergency
- Almost 1 in 4 (23%) of Americans do not have an emergency contact at all
So go sign-up, tweet, Facebook and enter in a chance to win the new iPhone 5 from EmergencyLink! For more information, visit http://www.emergencylink.com/iphone5.
