Your free durable plastic Emergency Contact Card could be a lifesaver

Free Emergency Contact Card logoIf you are involved in an accident, have a heart attack, stroke or other medical emergencies, who will speak for you if you cannot? It is important for first responders to know who to contact in the event of an emergency.

Retired Ottawa Police Sergeant Peter Couillard learned, from a compassionate first respondent’s side, that both life and non-life threatening events can be made worse by lack of easily accessible personal identification. As retired Sergeant Couillard so aptly put it, “when it comes to providing assistance to anyone in a medical or health-related crisis, every additional step in locating and contacting a family member or friend means precious time wasted in connecting these victims with their loved ones. Emergency contacts will bring comfort and may have valuable information that could be a lifesaver!”

Fred Bowie, Life & Retirement Guide at the Canada Retirement Information Centre developed a simple solution – a durable plastic waterproof card, with up-to-date family and friend emergency contact information.

A Durable plastic Emergency Contact Card is available for you, your family and friends for FREE, a gift from the Canada Retirement Information Centre Community Service Division. (no age restriction)

Applying for your card is easy, visit www.FreeEmergencyContactCard.com to create your own personal Emergency Contact Card. Your FREE DURABLE PLASTIC EMERGENCY CONTACT CARD will be delivered directly to your home by Canada Post (there is no cost to you for postage & handling cost) within 10 business days.

It only takes a couple of minutes to enjoy the peace of mind knowing that in case of an emergency family and friends can be contacted quickly and easily. Apply today.

The Beauty Studio on Greenbank Road

Restoring Your Hair from the Summer Elements

The Beauty Studio on Greenbank Road

With summer fun, unfortunately, comes post-summer hair damage. After spending time in the wind, sun, chlorine, salt water and air conditioning, your hair may be dull, brassy, frizzy, dry or brittle. Dry hair is the biggest complaint come September. There’s a protective coating on hair called the hydrolipidic film; if you have dry hair, that film is broken down somewhat anyway, when you colour it, it breaks down a little more — but when you add sun, salt water, and chlorine, you can destroy the film altogether.

The result is that moisture located deep in the core of the hair shaft evaporates leaving your hair crying out for hydration.

As well, salt, sun and chlorine cause certain hair colours (mostly blondes and redheads) to turn brassy and hair that’s been abused by summer’s elements may be difficult to comb out leaving it prone to breakage.

The professionals at The Beauty Studio can restore your tresses to their former glory. If your hair colour has faded or changed due to exposure to chlorine, sun, etc., they can help. Maybe it’s just time for a new look….colour, highlights, extensions, perms or straightening of course…. but they also specialize in styles like corn rows, fusion, Ghana and jerry curls. They also offer design haircuts for men.
