The District supports the File of Life program and makes all program materials available to residents at no charge. This program is designed to provide the District's firefighters and paramedics with a quick medical overview when a patient may be unable to offer one or may forget to mention something important. File of Life program materials consist of a card which individuals complete, containing an abbreviated medical history (known allergies, health problems, current medications, recent surgery) insurance and emergency contact information.
The card is designed to fit into the included red plastic File of Life pocket, which is held with a magnet to the outside of the refrigerator in the home. Also provided is a smaller red plastic pocket and information card. The compact pocket is approximately the size of a business card and can be easily carried in a wallet or purse. The included reflective sticker is placed on the front door of a home, which alerts emergency personnel to the existence of a File of Life inside a residence. Instructions and an informative brochure complete the kit.
To receive a File of Life kit simply visit our Administrative Offices at 1500 Bollinger Canyon Road in San Ramon or call us at (925) 838-6600.
