Paramedics and other Edina emergency responders will look for what’s called a Life File form if they respond to your home. This form, which you fill out, lets them know vital information like medications you take, hospital preference, insurance information and emergency contacts. This form is especially helpful if you or another family member is unconscious or unable to respond clearly.
The below links will help you find and fill out this form. You can put the completed form in an envelope clearly marked "Life File" on your refrigerator. If you do not want it posted there, paramedics also will look for it by your medicine cabinet or on the back of your front door. Just make sure it is in plain sight in one of these locations.
