Community Services

File of Life

The “File of Life” is a mini-medical history file that is posted on the outside of a patient’s refrigerator, and/or carried in a wallet or purse. The objective is to make accurate and complete medical histories immediately known 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 information, health history, medications, dosages, allergies, doctor’s name, etc. You may pick up a File for Life card and holder at Fire Station No. 1, free of charge.  Call 248-433-7745 for more information.

Public Speakers

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.
