The FILE OF LIFE – what is it?

 file-of-life

The Pedernales Fire Department Auxiliary is proud to announce the start of our FILE OF LIFE promotion at the upcoming 4/25 Crawfish and Shrimp Boil.  The FILE OF LIFE is an important tool in life saving measures during a 911 call.

The FILE OF LIFE is a magnetized plastic pouch which hangs on the refrigerator with a folded medical information sheet on the inside.  The information on the card is invaluable, especially during a 911 call where the patient might not be able to give the  responders the critical information they need.  There is room on the card for medications the patient is currently taking, doctor’s and insurance info and other pertinent information for responders to better assess the situation.  This card is also helpful if you are having someone care for a parent or relative as all the information is there should a doctor need to be called or a question arises about medication or insurance.

These FILE OF LIFE pouches will be available for the first time at the annual fundraiser – the Crawfish and Shrimp Boil on 4/25/15 – for $3.00 each or two for $5.00.  Whether for yourself or for a parent or relative, this is one more tool in making sure the correct information is available to emergency responders and caretakers.

And as always, thank you for your continued support!!
