More Information



FILE OF LIFE is a medical information packet designed to provide emergency personnel with necessary medical data to begin immediate treatment.


FILE OF LIFE card enables medics to obtain a quick medical history when a patient is unable to offer one. This very simple concept is encouraged to be used by any person but is especially helpful in cases where patients live alone. 


The card, which is kept in a red plastic pocket labeled FILE OF LIFE, lists the patient name, emergency medical contact, insurance policy, social security number, health problems, medications, dosages, allergies, recent surgery, religion and a health care proxy. The sticker inside should be placed on the front door of a persons residence to alert responding medical personnel to locate the entire pocket which is held with a magnet to the outside of the refrigerator.


File of Life Packets can be obtained at any Ponca City Fire Station.
