Local business supports business of saving lives

JERSEY SHORE –The Frederick B. Welker Funeral Home has graciously invested back into the community in order to promote the saving of lives.

Owner Frederick B. “Toby” Welker, along with his daughter, Abbey R. Welker Yoas, recognized a very unique opportunity to assist our local first responders through an ingenious marketing initiative that could help save lives.

Toby and his family asks that you download the Vital ICE App, from either the Apple App Store or Google play, for your smart phone and enter in their code: 1225. The Welker family is making this potentially life-saving app available for free to download in the community as a way of showing their gratitude for allowing them to serve you.

They ask that you please 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.

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 emailed directly to the hospital from the app, where ER staff can further access this critical information.
