Vial of Life Kits for Medical Emergencies

Be prepared in case of an emergency! A Vial of Life kit provides a form to document your medical information and emergency contacts. The form is inserted into the plastic vial provided and stored in your refrigerator for easy access by emergency medical responders. This service is encouraged for anyone, of any age, with a chronic medical condition.

Free Vial of LIfe kits are available at Metrocrest Services and area fire stations. Participants are encouraged to keep their kits current by updating and printing personal information regularly.

To request a free kit, call 972-446-2100.
