News Release: File of Life
Beaver Island EMS and the Beaver Island Rural Health Center are now providing community members with a free "File of Life." These "files" are a great way to keep pertinent medical and personal information readily available in case of an emergency. The information in these files include medical history, allergies, medications, and emergency contact information. Having this information on hand in an emergency is beneficial to responders, and can improve the quality and efficiency of care provided to a patient. The "File of Life' folder has a magnetic strip to be attached to a refrigerator to make it easily identified and utilized by Emergency Responders.
The "File of Life" will be available for free at the Beaver Island Rural Health Center, and the Health Center will be available for any questions or assistance in filling out a "File of Life."
