PALO ALTO, Cali. - Tiny technology is giving some elderly California residents peace of mind.

Flash drives are being made available to seniors who wish to have pertinent medical information on their person at all times, in case of emergency.

Annie Hagstrom and her husband came up with the idea.

The device doesn't carry any personal information like your address or social security number.

It just includes health information for seniors and what medics should know about them in case of an emergency.

Police and fire departments have embraced the idea.

Seniors with the device said it gives them and their families peace of mind.
