LIVERMORE — Vial of Life kits have been made available from the Tri-Town Community Action Group. The kit allows individuals to provide medical information in advance that can be used by emergency personnel in the case of an emergency.

“The Vial of Life is designed to speak for you when you can’t speak for yourself. The vial contains important medical information that can assist emergency personnel in administering the proper medical treatment,” said Maine State Trooper Michael Chavez.

The program consists of a vial, such as an empty pill bottle or plastic bag, labeled with a Vial of Life sticker. A medical form is placed inside the vial that may include information about medical conditions, medications, allergies, date of
birth, insurance information, and a doctor’s address and phone number.

The vial is placed in
the refrigerator and stickers are placed in the front
window of the home so that responding emergency personnel will know to
look for the vial.

 The Tri-Town Community Action Group has designed magnets and stickers to go on the refrigerator and the front door.

To receive a packet, which includes the magnet for the refrigerator, a Vial of Life form and stickers for the vial and front door, contact Sandra Morris at 897-9238, Diane Richard at 897-3208, Tim Cox at 897-9485 or Rene Grondin at 897-5501.

The Tri-Town Community Action Group meets monthly. The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18, at the Livermore Town Office.
