Everyone deserves prompt, quality medical care, especially when it matters most – in an emergency. The File of Life is designed to make the difference between life and death by providing vital information to first responders. The providers strive to maintain an open dialogue with communities across America to provide the most up-to-date, effective information and products possible.

Why everyone should have their own File of Life:

Medical emergencies can happen anytime. When they do, there is confusion, panic and urgency. Every second counts. First Responders arrive on the scene with no information about the person in need. Does the patient have prior medical conditions? Allergies? What medications are they taking? Who do they want us to call? How do we contact their family or friends? The File of Life puts these answers at their fingertips and allows them to immediately begin the best possible treatment, notify loved ones, and pass vital data on to awaiting physicians at the emergency room. This simple magnet has already saved thousands of lives and is an absolute asset to emergency preparedness, and peace of mind, for every household and community across the nation.
