Emergency Refrigerator Card

Every second counts when firefighters and paramedics respond to a call for help. Being able to provide your medical information can make all the difference in an emergency. But how can you provide medical information if you are unconscious or can't communicate?

Gresham Fire and Emergency has developed a Medical Emergency Refrigerator Card that is intended to provide responders with valuable information concerning your health and past medical history. The form should be shared with your health care provider to ensure the information provided is accurate. The form should also be updated when starting or stopping medication, or when there are changes in your health status.
