Vial of Life
A Community Improvement Project
Minutes, even seconds count in a medical emergency…

Vial of Life is a new project sponsored by the Sparta Woman’s Club to aid Police, Ambulance and Fire Department personnel during an Emergency call to your home.

The simple, Vial of Life kit is designed to speak for YOU when you can’t speak for yourself.
Police and First Responders need to know: what medical condition(s) you have… what medicines you are taking…
if you have allergies… names of your doctors… your age…
who you want notified in a medical emergency and more!

The Vial of Life alerts emergency personnel to your vital medical information…
and could save your life.

How does it work?

  • Complete the Medical Form and place it in the Vial of Life baggie.   If you need additional Medical  Forms for family members, feel free to make copies of the one included.
  • Adhere the baggie to the front of your refrigerator with the decal facing forward.
  • Place the second decal on your front door.  This alerts responding personnel to the fact that your Emergency Information is readily available on the door of your fridge.
