File of Life

File of Life
File of Life

File of Life is a new program offered by a partnership between the Mercer Island Fire Department & Senior Foundation of Mercer Island. It was designed to bring all your important medical information to the attention of Firefighters, Paramedics and Police Officers in the case of an emergency.

During emergencies, seconds count. Vital information, such as past medical history, allergies, medications, or persons to contact is required to provide the best possible care. The File of Life provides this critical information in the event the patient is incapacitated or unable to respond to questions. It could HELP SAVE YOUR LIFE.


The File of Life is a red plastic magnetic file folder that attaches to your refrigerator. The file contains vitally important information about you so that emergency medical professionals have quick access to your basic medical information.

This information includes:

  • Medications that you take
  • Allergies you have
  • Your Medical Conditions
  • Your Blood Type
  • Emergency Contact Information
  • Your Physician's Name
  • Your Preferred Hospital

You can obtain a FREE File of Life card for you and each of your family members at either Fire Station.
