“File Of Life” Can Help In Medical Emergencies

In an emergency, medical personnel may arrive at the scene and find a patient unable to communicate essential facts about their medical history. The City, in collaboration with the Sound Shore Medical Center, the Council of Community Services, and TransCare, has acquired several thousand “File of Life” cards that can be affixed to a refrigerator in a magnetic pocket. We encourage residents, especially seniors, to obtain a “File of Life” card, free of charge, through the New Rochelle Office for the Aging at 235-2363.
