Gypsy Journal RV: Getting sick on the road

From the bloggers at Gypsy Journal RV.

One of the biggest fears I hear about from new and wannabe RVers is what happens if somebody gets sick or seriously injured while traveling. Hopefully it never will, but sometimes life has other plans for us. A little advance preparation will help make things a lot easier.

The first thing you should do is know where you are and where the nearest emergency medical facilities are. When you check into an RV park, ask them where you can seek medical help if needed. I use a free app on my phone called Where Am I? that provides my current street address, the county, and zip code, as well as GPS coordinates. With that I can give 911 operators my exact location anywhere in the country.

Something else that is important and only takes a moment to do is to fill out a small 3 by 5 index card with your name, current campground address, description of your RV and license plate number, and emergency contact information. Keep it facedown on the dashboard of your car with “Emergency Info” written in large letters on the opposite (visible) side. This can be helpful to emergency responders if you get into an accident while running an errand away from the campground.
