Life Saving Staff GiftAs part of our employee wellbeing programme, Saint Gobain engaged with Connie Danaher of Irish ICE cards as we felt this initiative would be very beneficial to our staff.
Connie came on site, discussed what ICE cards entail and how Saint Gobain were gifting their employees the card for both themselves and their families.
Saint Gobain found Connie extremely professional, engaging, the whole process for our staff was effortless and totally confidential.
I would highly recommend Connie and Irish ICE cards and our staff were delighted with their gift.
How an Irish ICE Card Saved My Friend's Life"I have a good friend who suffers with type 1 diabetes. He isn't the best lad at looking after himself, and occasionally has a few more beers than he should and can be a tad forgetful with his meds. He is a bachelor and lives on his own. He had a significant birthday recently, and had an enjoyable night out with the lads.
Next day he was doing the messages and became unwell. Due to his behaviour and smell of last nights party, it was assumed he was drunk. They propped him in a chair and left him to his own devices. We think approximately 30 minutes later he collapsed, so the Garda were called.
On arrival and checking his pocket, his ICE card was located. The newly trained Garda recognised the symptoms and called for an ambulance. He was in hospital for 2 days and if an ambulance was not called thanks to his ICE card, he may have slipped into a diabetic coma. Hence I decided that the card has real value and am currently passing on the word.
Hope this testimonial in some small way helps someone else - a simple, but so important and possibly life saving aid."
