Do you live alone? Do you take a lot of different types of medications on a daily basis? Have an extensive medical history? Do you want the best care provided to you when the Delanco Emergency Squad is called to your home for an emergency?
If you answered yes to any one or more of these questions, you need to make sure you have a File of Life on your refrigerator!
The purpose of the File of Life is to provided EMT’s and Paramedics quick access to your personal information, emergency contacts and pertinent medical information. By having this information filed out and available to medical personnel, we can spend less time trying to figure this information out and more treating you, the patient. Especially in the event the patient is unconscious and there is no family members around, we have no way of getting information such as drug allergies a patient may have.
If you are interested and would like a File of Life for every member of your household, please contact the Delanco Emergency Squad.
