The goal of an Emergency Services Week "brown bag" program, in which people are asked to bring their medications for analysis, is not to help identify stray medications, but to provide individuals with a card listing the drugs to aid medical personnel during an emergency. An item in the Left Lane column posted Friday may have given an incorrect impression of the program's purpose. People should bring their medications in the original bottles when they meet paramedics: 9 a.m.-4 p.m. today at Honolulu Hale Courtyard; 11 a.m.-5 p.m. tomorrow at Ala Moana Center; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday at Windward Mall, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday at Pearlridge Center.
