File of Life
A new program called the "File Of Life" has been
implemented by the Bloomfield Township Fire Department. The
"File of Life" is a mini-medical history file that is posted
on the outside of a patient's refrigerator, and/or personally
carried in a wallet or purse. The objective of this program is
to make accurate and complete medical histories immediately
available to fire department paramedics when the patient or a
family member is unable to offer one.
The card, which is kept in a red plastic pocket labeled
"File of Life", lists the patient's name, emergency medical
contacts, insurance policy and social security numbers, health
problems, medications, dosages, allergies, recent surgeries,
religion, doctor's name, and a health care proxy. The entire
pocket is held with a magnet to the outside of the
refrigerator. A "File of Life" door sticker should be placed
on the door EMS personnel are most likely to enter to alert
them that a "File of Life" is present in the home.
You may pick up a "File of Life" kit free of charge. The
kit will contain a File Of Life Refrigerator Pocket, a Medical
History Card for the Refrigerator Pocket, and a Wallet History
Card with holder and the "File of Life" door sticker. The kits
are available at any of the Township's fire stations. Call
248.433.7745 for more information.

services. To arrange for a speaker for your group or school,
