In case of an emergency anywhere in the world, the patent pending Barcode ID Tag and secured web portal will aid first responders by providing them essential personal and medical information that can assist in recovery, influence treatment choices or provide notifications and permissions on how to best treat the person or pet in front of them, right from their smart phone.

The ID Tag will cost 19.95 for one and $69.95 for a family pack of 5 and will have an annual $19.95 subscription portal access and data storage fee. The product and service will be promoted through Code Amber’s nearly 200,000 current opt-in data base, millions of ticker readers and site traffic in addition to many thousands of domains around the world and their internet visitors via affiliate marketing relationships. The Company also plans to market the world wide service through its existing domestic and international channels of distribution, all under the widely recognized and trusted Code Amber Brand.
The dramatic need for a secure digital identification tag and access from anywhere in the world through a handheld smart phone is born out of the ever increasing number of people and pets that wonder off or in need of emergency services and medical care. 65 million baby boomers, many of which will suffer the disorienting symptoms of dementia. 1 million children will get lost, but thousands more will fall off bicycles, skate boards or roof tops and sustain head traumas. Millions of pets every year get lost and are never returned to their proper owner. An over taxed emergency services system is already challenged with all these 911 calls. Crucial to administering timely and proper assistance and care, those first on site professionals or more likely an individual carrying a smart phone, will be well informed with access to an accurate and complete ID profile, contact information, insurance providers, primary physicians and medical history. The Code Amber Alertag is a life-extension of the Code Amber mission – to locate lost, missing, injured or abducted persons and is synergistic with the GTX Corp positioning of being the better people and pet finder.
