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.
The Fire Chief, the Fire Marshal and other officers are always happy to speak to Bloomfield Township community groups and schools about fire safety and prevention and emergency medical services. They often visit schools to educate children and show them a fire truck. They speak at babysitting clinics to train babysitters in fire safety and emergency medical services. To arrange for a speaker for your group or school, please call 248-433-7745.
