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.
