LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/13 --
MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCQB: MMRF) today announced that it will provide a free MyEsafeDepositBox or MyMedicalRecords Personal Health Record (PHR) account for anyone affected by the Oklahoma tornado or anyone living in an area that could be threatened by tornadoes through the end of tornado season. The service is being offered to help both affected families in transition from the effects of a disaster as well as anyone that lives in potentially impacted areas and believes they are in harm's way, no questions asked. Having a MyEsafeDepositBox or MyMedicalRecords account will allow families to safely archive vital documents, images and medical records online while rebuilding or as part of a family preparedness plan in advance of a disaster. Each account includes up to 10 family members, including pets, and provides a place to securely store and access potentially life-saving personal health information and important emergency documents such as insurance policies, deeds of trust and financial records as well as photos of children, pets and property. The service also includes a complimentary toll-free telephone number to use as a message center as part of a disaster preparedness communications plan. Additional information about the MyEsafeDepositBox vault and MyMedicalRecords PHR can be found at www.mmrvideos.com and www.myesafevideos.com. The Company will be reimbursed for costs to provide the free services by its CEO and his wife, philanthropist couple Bob and Kira Lorsch.
Bob Lorsch is no stranger to disaster preparedness. He was recognized in 2006 by the U.S. Small Business Administration with its "American Spirit Award" for his efforts in disaster preparedness since the early 1980s and MyMedicalRecords.com's contribution to disaster preparedness in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He has also received the prestigious "C" Flag Private Sector Initiative award from the White House during the Reagan administration for his work in raising millions for financing state and local earthquake preparedness education. His efforts for this cause, which include serving on numerous earthquake preparedness committees, also earned him awards from the City and County of Los Angeles, the State of California and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Lorsch was also an underwriter of the Los Angeles City and County Earthquake Preparedness program which included printing millions of disaster preparedness education materials through schools and fire stations http://mmrglobal.com/earthquake/neighbor_helping_neighbor/.
According to Lorsch, "We never believe the worst will happen until it's too late. Our hearts go out to the people affected by the disaster in Moore and Newcastle, Oklahoma and feel it is important to provide our emergency services when and where they are needed most. That is why we are offering complimentary 90-day accounts with free toll free disaster preparedness lifeline numbers through the end of the summer. Of particular importance is how, when using our MyEsafeDepositBox or MyMedicalRecords PHR, emergency personnel can quickly access potentially life-saving information including pre-existing conditions, blood type, allergies and current medications that can make the difference in surviving a disaster."
