Do You Have Your File of Life?

Wendy Smith, Community Crime Prevention Coordinator with the City of Rocklin, and Mickey Waldrip, City Volunteer, introduced us to some important Senior activities that the City oversees!

  

ROCKLIN'S PUBLIC SAFETY VOLUNTEERS OFFER THE "FILE OF LIFE" PROGRAM

Hundreds of times each day across the country seniors and those with serious medical conditions are treated and often transported to local hospitals. All too often, the patient lives alone, has no family members in the area, or is unconscious and cannot provide an appropriate medical history to first responders or emergency room staff.

The "FILE OF LIFE" is a magnetized red plastic pocket which is kept on the refrigerator. Within is the patient's name, emergency medical contact, health history, and other important details about the patient, including a health care proxy. .

Rocklin's Public Safety Volunteers provide free Files of Life and other helpful senior safety information. Senior Safety presentations are available for groups and individuals. If you would like more information, please contact Wendy Smith, Crime Prevention Coordinator, at 916-625-5440 or wendy.smith@rocklin.ca.us.
