File of Life
During a medical emergency, the history of the event, past medical history, current medications and other details are of utmost importance. Sometimes, a person having a medical emergency may be confused, frightened, unable to speak or unable to accurately remember their important medical facts.The File of Life is an informational packet that lists a person's emergency contacts, medical data, medical conditions, allergies, and other important facts. The packet, nicely contained in a magnetic holder, is placed on the refrigerator where EMT's or officers can locate it quickly if there is an emergency. There is an additional packet that can be carried in a vehicle, purse or pocket.
A File of Life is available free of charge to Renville County residents. Just stop in the Sheriff's Office and pick yours up! They are often available at various community events as well.
