Picture this: Emergency medical personnel arrive at your home, only to find you alone and unconscious or confused. They have few facts at their disposal. Do you have any existing conditions? Are you taking medications? Do you have any allergies? The EMTs frantically search through your medicine cabinet looking for clues, while precious seconds tick by.
The File of Life© is a card containing important medical information essential to those responding to an emergency situation. There is a large card, which slips into a magnetized, bright red pocket for prominent display on your refrigerator and ready accessibility to EMTs. A smaller one, for carrying in your wallet or purse, can assist hospital emergency staff. The cards contain space for emergency contacts, doctors’ names, medical conditions, medications, surgeries, allergies, medical insurance information, etc., and Palatine Township is pleased to be offering them free of charge to our residents. Just stop by Palatine Township Center, 721 S. Quentin Road, Suite 101, Palatine, and
ask for the File of Life©!
The File contents are only as good as the information you list. BE SURE TO KEEP IT CURRENT!
