Message in a Bottle

Message in a Bottle

Lion Hillary Smith presents the bottles to Newquay Womens Institute

Abbreviated to MIAB, it is a simple piece of paper asking pertinent questions that contain vital information about you, directed at the Emergency Services, which allows them to make quick and accurate decisions on what action to take at the point of contact, which could save your life in an emergency at home.

A white plastic bottle containing a form that contains vital information about you that could save your life, due to the speed with which the Emergency Services could respond to your individual needs.


The bottle is placed where the Emergency Services are trained to look, in the refrigerator door. A green cross sticker is placed on the inside of the main door, or where it is considered would be most obvious and another sticker on the door of the fridge.


The information provided should include where you keep your medication and latest prescription, contact details, major medical conditions, personal doctor and anything considered necessary that would need attention in those first critical moments.

Bottles can be obtained from Newquay Towan Blystra Lions Club free of charge. For more information on how to get hold of yours, please contact us here.
