Vial of Life Program
The Vial of Life program is a free program designed for seniors and individuals with serious medical conditions to provide pertinent medical information to emergency personnel who respond to home emergencies. A Vial of Life contains the medical history needed by the responding emergency personnel, such as existing medical conditions, allergies, and medications currently being taken.
Vial of Life participants complete a Medical Information Form that is then placed on the refrigerator. A Vial of Life decal is then placed on the front door in plain view for emergency personnel to alert them that medical information is located inside the home.
To obtain your Vial of Life packet, call 631-728-1235 for further information.
