Why Everyone Should Have Their Own File of Life
writes, "The File of Life is a brief form summarizing an individual's medical condition and related information that would help paramedics and hospital personnel better serve the patient, particularly if the patient is unable to communicate. This information is inserted into a magnetized plastic folder and placed on the outside of the refrigerator."
Recently the North Attleborough Police Department posted on their facebook page @Nattleboropd about the need for local residents to have their own File of Life.

"Why everyone should have their own File of Life:

Medical emergencies can happen anytime. When they do, there is confusion, panic and urgency. Paramedics arrive on the scene with no information about the person in need. Seconds count they can make the difference between life and death. Does the patient have prior medical conditions? Allergies? What medications are they taking? Who do they want us to call? How do we contact their family or friends?

The File of Life puts these answers at their fingertips. It allows first responders to immediately begin the best possible treatment, notify loved ones, and pass this vital data on to awaiting physicians at the emergency room. File of Life has already saved thousands of lives. It is an absolute asset to emergency preparedness, and peace of mind, for every household and community across the nation.

North Attleboro Police is able to offer these in limited supply at no cost to residents. For more information please contact Ofc. Kristine Crosman at kcrosman@nattleboro.com"
