File of Life Program
The File of Life (FOL) program provides critical medical information to emergency response personnel during a medical emergency. The program is offered free to anyone who needs it. Through participation in the program, FOL will provide valuable medical information that will be readily available to first responders if it is needed. This is not an electronic database. The FOL card is similar to the photo below. We recommend that participants fill out the form and use the magnetized pouch and place it on their refrigerator.
Sherborn Fire and Rescue has been apart of the Project LifeSaver program since 2007. Through this program, Sherborn Firefighters have rescued several individuals who were missing from their families. If you or someone you know is interested in signing up for Project LifeSaver, please email Kristin Buckler.
