Life File

**The Life File will be available soon. Please stay tuned for when you can come pick up your printed form and/or magnet.

The East Central Fire Department is reinstating the Life File to better help personnel during times of emergency when a patient may be unable to answer pertinent questions in order to administer life-saving care.

The Life file is a document that details your health information such as medications, emergency phone numbers, surgeries, diagnosed conditions, insurance, etc. A Life File saves valuable time during an emergency and can provide important medical information to paramedics even if you are unable to answer questions. Everyone should have a Life File regardless of age. You never know when the information might be needed. Make sure to complete one form for each person in your household. Even if you have no allergies, medications, or diseases, it is important for your emergency care team to know!

Your Life File can be completed and placed in an envelope clearly marked "Life File". Use either a magnet or tape to attach the envelope to your refrigerator. Paramedics are trained to look for the Life File on your refrigerator during an emergency.
