CFD offers "File of Life"

Have you ever worried about yourself or a family member having a medical emergency and not being able to communicate with the first responders coming to help you. Without knowledge of your medical history, first responders can not as quickly assess and treat you.

The Chambersburg Fire Department is pleased to announce our newest community initiative to better protect our residents. The "File of Life" program is a packet that allows you a card to record all of your vital emergency information on, plus a magnetic sleeve to place the card on your refrigerator. Having a "File of Life" in your residence will better assist first responders in assisting you during an emergency and provide that vital information when seconds count.

If you would like to participate in our "File of Life" program you may call Headquarters Fire station at 717-263-5872 to learn how to obtain one.

The Chambersburg Fire Department would like to thank Council Member Dennis Schmaltz for bringing the idea of this program to the Fire Department and providing input during the planning stages of it.
