Request a File of Life

The File of Life is a card which contains vital personal medical information and is kept on the outside of your refrigerator in a bright red magnetic pocket, readily accessible to EMTs when they arrive on an emergency call.

The File of Life is a program that encourages residents to keep track of vital medical information, allowing emergency responders to access this information.

Keep the “file” of information in a visible, obvious location in their homes.  Possible locations include:

  • On the outside of a refrigerator
  • On a medicine cabinet
  • On an interior residential metal door (the type found in an assisted living center)

 When using the File of Life:

  • Record information in pencil.  Updates and revisions may be necessary, as information is only useful if it is updated frequently. Be sure to maintain current information regarding medication and dosages.
  • The File of Life is not a valid DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order.
