File of L.I.F.E.

Lifesaving Infromation for Emergencies

The File of Life program enables paramedics to obtain a quick medical history whenever the patient is unable to offer one. The file is intended to remain on the refrigerator in your home and is easy to find. Emergency personnel are trained to seek out the easily identified red pouch. These are available through the Huntley Fire Protection District.

There is no cost for the File of Life. Contact us to request more information about the program.

  • Name

  • Insurance policy
  • Social security numbers
  • Health conditions
  • Medications
  • Dosages
  • Allergies
