File of Life

The "File of Life" is a form used to record your vital information, emergency contacts, basic medical history, and the medications you take. This information is important to emergency responders, such as EMS, fire, and police.

Tuckahoe Volunteer Rescue Squad has created a short File of Life form that you can fill out on-screen, print, and keep in an area that would be obvious to emergency personnel. We suggest attaching it to the refrigerator and keeping a copy in your purse or wallet. Please remember that the form is only useful when it's up-to-date; if there are changes to your information, medical conditions, or the medications you're taking, please remember to update the form.

If you need to include additional information that is not covered by the form, please feel free to write it on the back of the printed copy.
