What is this?

This is a list of documents, health/physical conditions and characteristics about you, logistics/contact information, and authentication information that can be sent in advance of a trip to appropriate points of contact so they know how and what to do in the event of an emergency. The information is of two types: vital info - the things that are mostly consistent across trips & trip info - trip specific information.

Vital Info

  • Passport copy
  • Birth certificate
  • Immunization records
  • Allergies/health conditions
  • Blood type
  • Tattoos, other identifying marks
  • Lawyer info
  • Insurance information
  • Three questions and answers that can be used to determine that you are you in the event that that needs to be determined (proof of life questions)
  • Medical directive (living will)

Trip Info

  • Travel insurance information
  • Fixer/local contact
  • Itinerary
  • Media instructions (what media strategy is appropriate when someone is responding to your emergency?)
  • Equipment inventory
  • Register with embassy (if appropriate)
  • Visa status information
  • Who to send vital information to based on context and work
  • Airline information so someone else can change your ticket for you
