Thompson Funeral Homes & Cremation Services has invested back into the community in order to promote the saving of lives.

“We recognized a very unique opportunity to assist our local first responders through an ingenious marketing initiative that could help save lives. The funeral home asks that you download the Vital ICE (In Case of Emergency) app, from either the Apple App Store or Google Play, for your smart phone and enter in their code: #2373,” a news release said.

Thompson Funeral Homes & Cremation Services is making this potentially life-saving app available for free to download in the community as a way of showing its gratitude for allowing it to serve its communities. The funeral home asks that you take just a few minutes to download the Vital ICE app and fill in the information so that you are prepared in case of an emergency. This app is available to the entire community, regardless of age, so do not pass up this great life-saving opportunity, the news release said.

In the event of an emergency, first responders can use the Vital ICE app to retrieve the user’s vital information. This information can then be easily taken on the ambulance to the hospital, or sent directly to the hospital from the Vital ICE app, where emergency staff can further access this critical information.
