Hi Ginger,
I think your hubby needs a good swift kick!
Do you think he'd wear the dog tag, sweatband, shoe tags or if he has an Apple watch they have various plates that go on the band. They used to have a USB device and a watch.
Do you know why he won't wear one. If he won't wear it for himself, he should wear it for you.
You might remind him “Happy wife happy life.”
Mine has saved my life several times. I was found a few times seizing (I was in Status) and had the people not called Medic Alert & 911 I'd have been a goner.
Here are few options other than bracelets & dog tags.

Take care kids

@jakedduck1 It was an effort to get him to wear his wedding ring. I bought him a set of silicone wedding rings when he said he had to be careful around machinery on his job. Now that he is retired, he told me he "was just never a jewelry person", and doesn't see the value in being prepared. It's a continuing work in progress for me.

Thank you for sharing your experiences with a medical alert situation. I know my own situation, I rely on them. Some people I know have an app on ther phone that lists things, but what if your phone is not with you? As @rosemarya has told us, EMTs are trained to look for the tag/bracelet/etc.
