The File of Life is a magnetized pouch containing a person’s medical information that is placed on the refrigerator in case of emergency. In rural areas, the information – obtained immediately by first responders who know right where to find it – can mean the difference between life and death. Hospital emergency departments report that the File of Life significantly speeds the triage process, especially for elderly and disoriented patients.
The File of Life program has continued for the past 12 years. Business First of Buffalo has honored STHCS as a Health Care Hero for distributing more than 40,000 File of Life refrigerator magnets free of charge to people in the three counties it serves.
