|Vial of L.I.F.E. (Lifesaving
Information For Emergencies)
This easy program can help save your life or that of a
loved one. The Vial of LIFE speaks for you when you are unable to
speak for yourself.
The Vial of L.I.F.E. contains your medical information (history, known drug
allergies, current medications) and contact information. It puts
helpful information regarding your medical history in the hands of EMTs when
it is needed most—during the first minutes of critical illness or accident
in your home. And it's FREE.
The kit contains:
- a decal that is attached to your refrigerator door
alerting EMS of the Vial of L.I.F.E.
- health history forms that are completed, in pencil,
for each family member. It is critical that this information remains
up to date and accurate.
- the vial, a plastic medicine bottle with a Vial of
L.I.F.E. decal, that it is kept in your refrigerator door.
Anyone can benefit from this program, especially if
you have special medical concerns including heart conditions, prior stroke,
seizures, chronic illness, or respiratory conditions. The program is also
for people who have known allergic reactions to medications or who have any
other life threatening allergies.
