A member became ill during his lodge stay and had to be transported to hospital. Everything turned out OK, but it made us think about how we could contact next-of-kin or another emergency contact in a similar situation. We recommend that you add an Emergency Contact to your member record in the booking system.

In menu Members->View My Details you can insert in the Comment field something like Emergency Contact: Fred Bloggs 0412 345 678. Then hit the Update button near top left. In an Emergency the booking officer or other authorised club officials can then look up that record.

This is a recommendation for the peace of mind of you and your family/close friends. It is by no means compulsory.

(If you choose to write an Emergency Contact in the Guest Notes for a specific booking, it may not be found for other bookings. Putting it in the member details should make it easier to find)
