Vial of Life
The "Vial Of Life" program is designed to provide needed information to emergency personnel in situations where you are unable to do so. The information in the vial should include medical history, medications and dosage, doctor's name, emergency contact numbers, hospital preference, and other information.
The container is located in your refrigerator within your house. This location is used as it is a common appliance in all homes and the contents of a refrigerator remain undamaged during a fire. Law enforcement, Fire Departments and Emergency Personnel are trained to look for the "Vial Of Life" in your refrigerator.
If you would like to participate in this program, please contact:
Theresa Cooper at the Villages District Office (352) 689-4600 or
Beth Hunt at SCSO Headquarters in Wildwood at (352) 569-1600.
