New Castle, DE – Today, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer and Chief of Emergency Medical Services Division Mark Logemann announced the availability of the VIAL of L.I.F.E. vials in New Castle County. 

 

The Vial of L.I.F.E program is a medical information form that the owner completes, then places in the provided medication bottle that is labeled “Vial of L.I.F.E” and placed in your refrigerator. The form includes your medical history, daily medications, demographics, doctor, hospital preference and an emergency contact. The medication bottle is kept in your refrigerator in direct view. The kit also comes with a Vial of L.I.F.E magnet to place on the refrigerator that signifies your participation program. 

 

An instructional video on the program can be viewed here.

 

Vials can be picked up at any of New Castle County libraries, the New Castle County Public Safety building, or can be requested by calling 302.395.8184 or emailing vialoflife@newcastlede.gov. The vials were provided for free by local pharmacy Ivira Health. 

 

The Vial of L.I.F.E program is a free service provided by New Castle County Emergency Medical Services to all seniors and disabled residents of New Castle County. The vial of L.I.F.E stands for Lifesaving Information For Emergencies.

   

“We encourage everyone who is eligible to participate in this free, and potentially life saving program,” said County Executive Meyer. “Thank you to the New Castle County EMS team for spearheading this program and thank you to our program partner Ivera Health for providing the vials for our neighbors.”

 

“The Vial of Life is a critical tool for first responders that will help them quickly shed additional light on the patient’s medical situation,” said Chief Mark Logemann. “By having these details on hand and quickly accessible will save valuable time when minutes and seconds are of the essence.”
