File Of Life

The File of Life is designed to attach to your refrigerator with a magnet so that in times of emergency, responders can find important information:

• A place to indicate if you have a Colorado Advanced Directive or a DNR form and instructions to attach the form.
• Emergency Contacts • Special Medical Conditions - Latest Data
• Medications (including dosage and frequency)
• Recent Surgeries
• Other Existing Medical Conditions
• Allergies
• Medical Insurance

The File of Life card is made to fold and be placed into a red plastic sleeve with a magnet on the back. Emergency personnel are trained to look for these red sleeves when they respond to an emergency.

You can get your "File of Life" at the Teller County Sheriff's Office. Phone# 719-687-9652
