Here is my final for ComLab Web. The site is called FirstCall.com and it’s a website where users can sign up, enter in their emergency contact information. They will then be mailed a QR encoded card which should be kept in their wallet. If they end up in a car wreck and become incapacitated in any way, the police can scan the card which will bring up the user’s emergency contact list with phone numbers and other information that might be pertinent (allergies, blood type, etc.).
This website was the idea of Dr. Bill Frank (my father in law) who is a Medical Examiner for the state of Maine. He often arrives at scenes where people have died in car wrecks. The typical police protocol as I understand it, is to identify the victim by the contents of their wallet, then call their residence. The problem often is that no one is home – they’re busy dying on the side of the road. SO, Bill’s idea was to deliver the phone numbers of those would need to know this information the most (your emergency contacts) to the cops, so the victim need not sit in the morgue for four months while everyone independently puts the pieces together.
I would like to continue working on this project. There are easy features to add, like membership/password status for users, as well as email notification as to when and where their key was accessed.
