Getting the right information is key during an emergency, and a program launched this week hopes to make that easier in the Carbonear area.
The File for Life program is deceptively simple: a document containing all pertinent medical information in plain view on the fridge. But it’s a system so low tech, you don’t need a computer or a phone to use it, and it won’t be lost due to power outage or connectivity issues.
The program, a partnership between first responders and the Seniors Resource Centre, was launched for Carbonear at the Knights of Columbus last night.
Phil Hurley of the K of C says they are looking for more partner community groups to continue expanding the program across the province.
