File of Life
File of Life Refrigerator MagnetThe "File of Life" is a refrigerator-style magnet folder that contains vital patient information for EMS personnel in the event of an emergency. It also comes with a wallet-size card that can be carried with you in the event of an emergency away from home. Both contain the same information. The "File of Life" contains information such as patient's name, address, date of birth, medical history, and other crucial information that will help speed up patient care while the fire and ambulance crew are on the scene. Be sure to locate the magnetic "File of Life" folder on your refrigerator in plain view. Keep the wallet card on you at all times. Advise EMS personnel upon their arrival that you have a "File of Life". If you are unconscious or unable to speak, EMS will automatically look on your refrigerator when they arrive at your house to see if you have a "File of Life". The File of Life can be obtained from the Santa Cruz Fire Department. Further information can be obtained at
