The New Berlin Fire Department takes part in the File of Life program. This magnetic, plastic pouch is 5 inches by 4 inches and is placed on a refrigerator door. The pouch contains a three-part, foldable card that lists:
- Emergency contacts
- Medical history
- Occupant names
- Prescribed medications
The highly visible and easily accessible pouch helps emergency medical technicians, firefighters, and police officers get critical information during an emergency situation. If an occupant is unable to answer questions for any reason, emergency personnel have all of their pertinent information readily available.
Obtaining a Card
Police social workers have a supply of the cards, and the welcome wagon will give the kits to new residents. Kits are also available to pick up at the Public Safety Building:
