Carry a special identity bracelet, (Epi Alert) neck pendant or card with details of your epilepsy, your medication, first aid and a contact phone number for a relative. Epilepsy Ireland also stocks the innovative Tap2Tag medical alert wristbands in our shop, which are designed to provide potentially lifesaving information during an emergency. 

If you are fortunate enough to experience a warning sign or aura (not everyone does) this may allow you tell someone you may be about to have a seizure or enable you to move to a safe place. A child can carry a card on behalf of a parent which can be given to a helper in the event of a seizure. Keep money and valuables carried to a minimum and conceal them to guard against theft or loss.
