File of Life

 

The "File of Life" Program is provided 100% free of charge by the Bloom Township Fire Department. 

 

The “File of Life” is a miniature medical history that is kept in a red plastic sleeve with a 

magnetic strip. Once the history card is filled out, it is placed back in the sleeve. The magnetic sleeve is then placed on the outside of the refrigerator in a visible place. 

 

The “File of Life®” details a person’s name, emergency medical contacts and insurance policy 

information. It details current health problems, current medications and dosages. It lists allergies, recent surgeries, your doctor’s name and phone number, your health care proxy information and your religious affiliation. 

 

The “File of Life ®” enables emergency personnel to obtain a quick medical history when a patient is unable to give one. The complete “File of Life ®” sleeve, is taken off the refrigerator, out of the wallet or vehicle and will accompany the patient to the hospital. Emergency room 

staff will have a quick medical history at their fingertips. This valuable information enables a quicker medical response time.
