Medical Emergency Refrigerator Cards: Every second counts when firefighters and paramedics respond to a call for help. Being able to provide your medical information can make all the difference in an emergency. But how can you provide medical information if you are unconscious or can't communicate?
Portland Fire & Rescue has developed a Medical Emergency Refrigerator Card that can provide responding firefighters and paramedics with your valuable health information and past medical history.
Please share this form with your health care provider to ensure the information provided is accurate. Make sure the form is updated with pertinent medication information and when there are changes in your health status.
