File of Live

North Lauderdale Fire Department now offering “File of Life” program FREE, potentially life-saving program provides first responders with important medical information

The North Lauderdale Fire Department’s “File of Life” program is an invaluable resource that allows a patient to communicate with emergency responders even if they are unresponsive.

The “File of Life” is a bright red plastic sleeve, roughly the size of a big postcard that affixes to a refrigerator with a magnet. Inside the sleeve is a form, which indicates medical history, prescriptions, allergies and emergency contacts. 

The form provides first responders with information about what ailments a patient may be suffering from without having to wait for tests.

The free “File of Life” sleeves can be picked up at Fire Stations 34 and 44 or at City Hall.
