The File of Life card enables ambulance personnel to obtain a quick medical history when the patient is unable to offer one. This card will eliminate the risk of the patient, who, in a frightened state, may forget to mention something important.
The card, which is kept in a red plastic pocket labeled FILE OF LIFE, lists the patient’s name, emergency medical contacts, insurance policy and social security numbers, health problems, medications, dosages, allergies, recent surgeries, religion, doctor’s name and a health care proxy. The entire pocket is held, with a magnet to the outside of your refrigerator.
The East Windsor Ambulance Association provides this very helpful service to the citizens of our community at no cost. You may request a File of Life by sending us an email with your name, address, phone number and the total number requested.
If you live in East Windsor and would like to find out more about the program or if you would like to request a FILE OF LIFE over the telephone or mail, please contact us using the Contact Us page.
