Here are some questions and answers pertaining to Cryonics
With a cryonics service provider.
Additionally, if you want someone to walk you through it step by step, contact one of our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
A cryonics contract itself can vary in price depending on
one's cryonics service provider, and option chosen from said
provider. It can be the equivalent of less than 50p a day
for a very respectable deal.
Cryonics has been around for over forty years now; you can
tour the facilities, visit the patients in suspension.
You can't. You have a choice, though: you can try it, and maybe live and maybe die. Or you can not try it, and definitely die.
We are Britain's volunteer emergency standby team. We will accept into membership anyone who has a suspension contract with a provider. These members can then attend training to become part of the emergency standby team on completion of training, and / or can pay a small fee to receive emergency standby without themselves being on the team.
It's said that a friend will help you move, but a true
friend will help you move a body. That's part of what we do.
If you are dying, we will arrive on the scene with equipment
ready to get started as soon as you are clinically dead. We
will attend to the administration of various medicines and
intravenous fluids, and the initial cooldown, and in all
ways prepare your body physically for shipping to your
cryonics provider perfused with cryoprotectants and kept at
a low temperature with dry ice. This is much better than you
than dying and then having to cool yourself down, stop your
own blood from congealing, and make your own way to the
other side of the world.
For Cryonics Institute (C.I.) members, standby costs are
not normally included in the fee they pay, however, many
members overfund their storage fee with CI and arrange for
the extra to be paid for local standby costs (e.g. to
Alcor charge a CMS (Comprehensive Member Standby) fee which
has a surcharge for those outside of the USA, however, they
are unlikely to be available at short notice. Alcor members
should confirm if Alcor will pay local standby costs to
Cryonics UK if our service is required.
Cryonics UK (CUK) are a voluntary non-profit making charity
and to protect our service and our members, must recover our
costs in providing standby services.
The following charges are fairly comprehensive:
Members pay monthly subscriptions and some invest time
and effort to attend quarterly training sessions to ensure
the service we offer is available, therefore if a
non-member requires standby, we must charge a last minute
membership fee of £5000 to cover the lost subscriptions
and ensure a fair service.
