Vial of Life

The Vial of Life program assists emergency personnel in obtaining important medical facts during a crisis in your home.

Paramedics who respond to your 911 call will look for the Vial of Life symbols and information to assist them in an emergency. This saves time and can save lives!

Pick-up a free Vial of Life kit from the Seniors Association of St. Margaret's Bay Information Centre any Tuesday or Thursday from 10am to Noon and follow the simple instructions included. The Emergency Medical Information sheet is filled out for each person in the home, and stored in the vial in the refrigerator door. Click here for a Microsoft Word version of the form that can be updated with word processing and printed whenever medical conditions or medications change.

The Vial of Life Program is recognized by all Ambulance, Police, Fire, and other emergency personnel throughout NS. It is highly recommended for everyone, and especially for people living alone, taking medication and who have chronic or disabling conditions.
