Emergency Medical Information Kit
In a life-threatening emergency, medical information can be difficult to remember or impossible to provide if you are unconscious or unable to communicate. At Bethesda, we take every necessary step to ensure you and your loved one are always safe.
How it works
Everyone — especially seniors — needs to have medical information available for first responders in case of an emergency.
- Order the kit
- Fill out the forms
- Put the package in your freezer
- Place the magnet on the refrigerator where it can be easily seen
Emergency responders are trained to look for this information in the freezer during a home emergency dispatch.
What’s in it?
Personal Emergency Medical Information Kits include a freezer-safe pouch, a refrigerator magnet alerting emergency personnel that the kit is inside the freezer, and pre-printed forms for personal medical information. Kit provides essential data including:
- Patient Info
