The card is placed in a small folder with a magnet on the back and hung on the refrigerator.  Then affix the small sticker provided on a front window or door.  In the event of an emergency the sticker lets medical responders know  to look for the File of Life on the refrigerator where they can see your specific medical conditions and needs.

The Yellow Dot is a similar safety program designed to save you valuable time in the event of an automobile-related incident.  Simply complete the provided medical information card and place in your glove compartment.  Affix the provided Yellow Dot decal to the outside rear window on the driver’s side.  During an emergency, the Yellow Dot will alert first responders to look inside your glove compartment for pertinent medical information.
