Vial of LIFE
The Vial of LIFE means Lifesaving Information For Emergencies. By completing this Vial of LIFE kit, you will give medical emergency workers important information about your health in the case of an emergency.
It is also vital to note if you have a Power of Attorney for Health Care or an Advance Directive and include details in the provided Medical Information Form (see link below) about where emergency personnel can find a copy of these documents. They will bring a copy to the hospital if they need to transport you for care.
Emergency responders have been trained to look for a Vial of LIFE in the refrigerator if they see a sticker on or near your front door or a magnet on your refrigerator. The vial is kept in the refrigerator because it acts as a safe, protecting your vital health information in the case of a fire.
If you have any questions about how to complete your Vial of LIFE form or this process, please call (603) 650-5789.
