Something so simple as a bright red sticky square decal stuck on a plastic bag and taped on the inside of a refrigerator door could save lives. As high-tech emergency remedies ranging from ultra-sophisticated hospital equipment to wearable alarm systems proliferate, a basic yet tangible alert program has been launched by women at an Oil City church. It is called the Vial of L.I.F.E. (Lifesaving Information For Emergencies) and consists of a small plastic bag, a single sheet of paper and a bright red square of adhesive paper. It is designed to provide vital lifesaving information to emergency responders, family members and others who are trying to assist an adult or child in danger. The grab-and-go bag has a sticker on the outside and a medical information form inside. The packet is then stuck on the inside of your refrigerator door and a matching red Vial of L.I.F.E. sticker is placed on your front door.
