File of Life

file of life

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 for more information about the program or call us at 847-669-5066.

The File of Life card is kept in a red plastic pocket labeled accordingly and contains:

  • Name

  • Dosages
  • Allergies
  • Recent surgeries
