Gloucester County Emergency Medical Service (GCEMS) conducts numerous community outreach activities for the residents of Gloucester County.
About the Program
The "File of Life" program allows individuals to provide medical information in advance that can be used by GCEMS crews in the case of an emergency. The program consists of a file labeled with a "File of Life" sticker, inside the file is placed a medical form which has been filled out stating the health status of the individual and current medications being taken. The file is placed in an accessible location, usually recommended to be on the refrigerator door, because the file itself is magnetic.
The complete "File of Life" kit can be obtained from any GCEMS crew or Station, the Gloucester County administrative offices in Woodbury, or the GCEMS office in Clayton.
