The Rotary Club of Owasso, in partnership with the Owasso Fire Department, is launching a Vial of Life program for seniors. The Vial of Life program is nationally recognized as saving countless lives each year by providing emergency responders with life-saving medical information during an emergency.
Our goal is to provide the kits free of charge to Owasso and the surrounding community.
If your senior parent or another family member had a medical emergency and were by themselves, they might be unconscious or confused. If so, who would provide the crucial medical information that EMS personnel need in an emergency situation? Even if they are awake and aware, people don't always remember details in a time of crisis. This is the moment when the free Vial of Life kits can save a life!
Our goal is to help medical personnel make the best decisions regarding emergency treatment for Owasso, OK, and surrounding areas by providing a Vial of Life Kit for the residents who need them.
The Vial of Life Kit is designed to speak for the resident when they can't speak for themselves.
Vial of Life Kit
Each Vial of Life Kit contains 2 Decals, 1 Medical Information form, and insurance information. A zip-lock sandwich bag is recommended for storing the completed medical and insurance information.
How it Works: Steps
1. The resident answers questions about their health and medications on the medical information form. Do not add your social security number.
2. Place the medical and insurance information in a zip storage bag and securely tape it on the refrigerator door. Include: If you have a chronic heart condition, include a copy of your most recent electrocardiogram (EKG). Also include any relevant documents, such as:
Advance Directives, copy of insurance card, copy of medicaid or medicare card, do-not-resuscitate order, and a photo of yourself.
3. Place one sticker on the refrigerator door and one on the front door at eye level.
You should make additional copies of the kit to give to your children, and put in the glove box of your cars and take with you when traveling. You can also scan and save on a secure cloud drive.
