First responders with the Eagle Fire Department are reminding the public of the importance of carrying identification while out recreating, after an unconscious man was found in the foothills Saturday morning.

It happened near the Eagle Sports Complex around 11:30 a.m. Eagle Fire officials say citizens nearby rushed to start first aid. The man was transported to the hospital and is receiving medical attention. Details on his condition are unknown at this time.

The incident is prompting the reminder for individuals to carry personal identification and important medical history on their person when recreating in the outdoors, including a list of known allergies in the case of a medical emergency.

IPhone users can also set up a Medical ID within the Health app that can give first responders access to important information without needing to unlock your phone, including your blood type and emergency contact information.
