The File of Life is a voluntary program designed to help your local Firefighter-Emergency Medical Technicians to quickly obtain, in an emergency, your essential medical history, your support needs, and your emergency contact information. It could help save your life.

The File of Life is a refrigerator magnet with an attached red plastic pocket labeled “FILE OF LIFE”. In the plastic pocket is a tri-fold card on which you can record your vital emergency information. Fill in the information on the card. Remember, the information will help first responders to better assist you in an emergency.

When you finish filling out the card, fold it and place it back into the “FILE OF LIFE” plastic pocket and the place the whole thing on the outside of your refrigerator. Simple as that!

Don’t forget to keep your FILE OF LIFE information up to date!!

You can pick up the file and/or replacement cards at the Brigantine Fire Department & Emergency Medical Services.

The station is located at 1417 West Brigantine Avenue

Phone Number 609-266-2814
