Imagine that you are injured or suffer from a medical condition that temporarily renders you unconscious or unable to communicate effectively with paramedics. Without important information about your medical history, how will medics be able to quickly diagnose your condition and provide emergency care?
The Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service cares and is pleased to introduce a community initiative entitled the "File of Life" program. The File of Life packet enables Montgomery County Fire and Rescue personnel to obtain a quick and accurate medical history when a patient or family member is unable to offer one. The File of Life is a red, magnetic packet that contains vitally important medical information about you. The File of Life also provides an area to list contact information for your doctor, family members, insurance information and any other special circumstances that rescue personnel should know in caring for you. FREE File of Life packets are available upon request to all residents of Montgomery County, Maryland. Call 240-777-2463 for information or to have one mailed to you.
