Palm Beach County Fire Rescue has developed and funded the Vial of Life Program. This Program was established to offer citizens the opportunity to compile important health, medical, insurance, and emergency contact information. Fire Rescue and Law Enforcement personnel can utilize this data in the event of an emergency when a patient or victim is unable to speak and answer important questions that can have a significant effect on medical treatment.
The Vial of Life packet is in the form of a two-sided piece of paper that should be completed for each family member. The completed forms are to be attached to the refrigerator so it is accessible to emergency responders. It is vital that this information be kept updated as physicians and medications change.
