How it works

MyEMRcard is the fast, secure way to store your private information while sharing emergency contacts and vital medical information with first responders.

It’s fast, easy, and always secure.

MyEMRcard uses a scannable QR Quick Response code, which is printed on your membership card. Carry it in your wallet and alert first responders to it with an auto window sticker.

Family Accounts

MyEMRcard offers a discount for members who want to enroll a family member whose account you will manage, such as a child or elderly parent.

To create a family account you must first have a myEMRcard account. When you are signed in to your account go to the “Family” tab on the left side of the account page and click the blue “add family member” button. This will open up a sign-up screen.

Once you enter your family member’s basic information, they are enrolled. You can access and edit their account through the family tab when you are logged into your MyEMRcard account.


On the security tab, you can change your password.

You can also enable extra security features on the pages, called two-factor authentication. This asks you to enter a code that is sent to you by email or text before you can log into your account or access your information. You can apply this extra layer of security to your first responder profile or your entire account.

If you enable two-factor authentication to view your information, first responders will not have access to this information until you or someone else provides them with the authentication code.

We recommend only enabling enable two-factor authentication if you plan to only use MyEMRcard to store your personal information and not as an emergency information service for paramedics, EMS, or other emergency personnel.

If you enable two-factor authentication to log into your account, you will need to enter a unique code each time you log into MyEMRcard.

To enable either forms of two factor authentication, click the checkbox next to“enable two-factor authentication”.

  • Is my information safe?

Emergency contacts and medical information are important for everyone to have on file, but frequent travelers may want to include passport numbers, credit card numbers, and flight itineraries.
