Free County Services

This year was another exciting year for the Oswego Senior Center. Since its inception as a meal program in 2007, serving 56 people, we have grown and touched the lives of over 2,800 community members and their families.

The FILE of LIFE program helps members of the Police and Fire Department provide services at times when you or a family member may not be able to  communicate effectively due to medical reasons or personal injury.

Residents with any medical problems, seniors, and other interested citizens are provided a FREE FILE of LIFE packet. The packet consists of a door decal, a File of Life Information Card, and a magnetized vinyl cardholder for placement on your refrigerator door.

The door decal alerts first responders when they    arrive that they can easily find your FILE of LIFE in plain view on the front of your refrigerator. The      information card includes medication   taken, allergies, medical        conditions, blood type,   recent surgery, and emergency contact          information. Insert the card inside the vinyl cardholder and place on your  refrigerator door.

Everyone who has a medical condition should complete a FILE of LIFE.

Benefits:

  1. Faster help for citizens in emergencies
  2. Instantly know the medical history of a patient
  3. Corrective treatment can begin at once
  4. No wasted time getting information from a confused patient
  5. Easy access to potentially life-saving information
  6. Assurance that proper persons will be notified quickly

For more information on FILE of LIFE or to obtain a file, please call (630)553-9100 or stop by the Health Department during regular business hours. Put it on your fridge today.
