Message in a bottle

Rowa Pharmaceuticals Ltd. are very proud and honoured to partner with the Lion’s Club Bantry for their “Message in a Bottle” initiative.

“Message in a Bottle” project is supported by the following emergency services: Ambulance, Fire Brigade, Gardaí, Medical Professionals, HSE, Pharmacists and Local County Councils

“Message in a Bottle” is a simple idea that encourages people to keep their basic personal and medical details in a common place, where, in cases of emergency, the Emergency teams can easily access them. The information required is very basic but necessary. The Personal information Form is self- explanatory; however you may like to ask a relative, friend, neighbour or carer to assist in completing the form.


How does it work?

You are given a bottle (a Plastic Container) complete with personal information form and three self-adhesive green crosses. In the event of an accident or incident within the home, the first responder/emergency services on the scene will be alerted to the bottle by the label on the door. The bottle can then be located by the attending service.
