L.I.F.E. File is a new program offered by the Skokie Fire Department that allows you to place your medical history information in a bag and store it in your freezer. In the event of an emergency where you are unable to provide your medical information to our first responders, this program will allow for rapid access to critical details such as medical history, allergies, medications, and emergency contacts.

Pick up your L.I.F.E. File packet at any of these locations:

Register your L.I.F.E. File
Registering your L.I.F.E. File with the Skokie Fire Department is optional. Our first responders are trained to check your freezer for this vital information even if your file is not registered with our department. However, registering your L.I.F.E. File allows our dispatchers to communicate the availability of this information to our emergency medical service providers.
