The File of Life is an emergency alert system consisting of a card that contains vital personal medical information that is kept on the outside of a resident’s refrigerator or in a vehicle in a bright red magnetic pocket. The card lists the patient’s emergency medical contacts, health problems, medications taken, allergies, recent surgeries and more. There may also be a door decal that may be placed on the outside door to notify arriving EMTs that a File of Life card is on the resident’s refrigerator or inside vehicle.
