The Vial of Life program helps emergency personnel quickly learn important medical facts in times of crisis. A participant’s name, address, family doctor and health card number, along with emergency contacts, and list of medications are stored in a large plastic vial in the refrigerator door. Ambulance, Police and Fire departments are trained to look for the Vial of Life Sticker on refrigerator door. This symbol indicates that vital information is available to assist them to immediately begin treatment. Knowing what medications or chronic medical conditions may be present is important to paramedics. This information eliminates a number of possible treatments and may result in valuable life saving time.
