The City of Royal Oak Fire Department in partnership with Meijer is offering the File of Life folders to place on your refrigerator in case of a medical emergency where the resident is unable to communicate with emergency personnel. The folders are free to residents of Royal Oak.
The File of Life folder has a magnet with a pouch that will hold important medical information such as medical history, current medications and insurance information that can assist Fire, EMS or Police personnel who respond to the address of a medical emergency where the caller is unable to communicate with first responders.
Having the File of Life available to paramedics and first responders will save time and assist the emergency personnel with patient care. The File of Life folders can be picked up at Royal Oak Fire Station No. 1 at 215 East 6th Street.
