FILE-OF-LIFE

Fire Department EMTs and Outreach have developed a handy form to place on the outside of your refrigerator that contains all pertinent information should a medical emergency arise. This free, magnetic holder and form is well-known to the emergency response teams in Hopkinton.  

The File-of-Life form contains information regarding contacting your closest relative or friend, your insurance account numbers and a list of medications you take, along with other information a hospital might need.  Please contact the Outreach Department if you would like to have this form.  And, if you already have one, please be sure to keep it up-to-date or ask for a new form.  If you need assistance in filling it out Outreach would be happy to help.
