EquatorTrekking has addressed these concerns by implementing the use of UTAG, a device which stores emergency medical information about a person.

Parker, CO, November 25, 2010 --(, a premier tour operator specializing in personalized tours of Ecuador and the rest of South America announce their affiliation with the life saving device UTAG. It’s part of an ongoing effort to help ensure the safety of their customers while they travel and see the world.

As a leader in the global travel industry, Equator Trekking knows that with any adventure comes a certain risk. Furthermore, they know that when something goes wrong while traveling, that risk can be multiplied tenfold. Every day hundreds of patients arrive at hospitals, gravely injured but unable to be properly and promptly treated because doctors lack basic vital information needed to provide proper assistance. Things such as blood type, allergies, and whether or not a person has health insurance are all questions that may arise and warrant answers.

EquatorTrekking has addressed these concerns by implementing the use of UTAG, a device which stores emergency medical information about a person. It is water, shock and dust proof, (Norm IP57) and was created by the British army as a way to speak on a patient’s behalf should they be unable to speak or rendered unconscious. UTAG is also auto executable, which means it doesn’t require any special software, and it conveniently plugs directly into an available USB slot in any computer.

UTAG comes in three easy to use presentations: wristband, dogtag or keycard, is available in 7 different languages and stores only medical and contact information. When plugged into a computer’s USB, only the person’s basic information appears on the screen such as name, contact info, blood type, medical insurance, allergies, medical conditions, organ donor status and any other relevant information that may be needed in case of an emergency.

EquatorTrekking believes in the promotion of environmental education and in inspiring responsible outdoor recreation. They are acutely aware of the safety of their customers and only operate with certified guides who have the necessary knowledge and decision-making power at both medical responses and remote location evacuations. UTAG allows them to quickly and easily access vital medical and contact information should an emergency situation arise, making travel with them even more safe.
