Vial of L.I.F.E.

Lifesaving Information For Emergencies (known as L.I.F.E.) is a non-profit national program in which key medical information is available to first responders in the event of an emergency.


A plastic baggie is labelled with a Vial of L.I.F.E. sticker and contains all pertinent medical information needed, such as emergency contact, diagnoses, medications, allergies, legal designations, medical providers, and insurance information.


The Vial of L.I.F.E. stickered baggie is placed on the outside of your refrigerator.  An additional Vial of L.I.F.E. sticker is placed on your front door or window and will alert first responders to look for your medical information on your refrigerator.


The Amherst Township Senior Service Office is offering these kits to all Amherst Township Senior residents.  If you would like a kit or if you have any questions please feel free to call the office.
