File of L.I.F.E. Program

The City of Evanston is encouraging residents to participate in the File of L.I.F.E. (Life-saving Information for Emergencies) program, which allows them to communicate with emergency responders even if they are unresponsive.

The File of L.I.F.E., a plastic pouch with a bright red sticker, contains an information sheet for residents to indicate their medical history, prescriptions, allergies and emergency contacts. The pouch is placed inside the individual’s freezer, where emergency response personnel have been trained to look when responding to medical emergencies. The pouch can also contain other important documents, such as power of attorney, Do Not Resuscitate (DNR), and living will.

The File of L.I.F.E. is available online at, at the Levy Senior Center, 300 Dodge Ave., and at all five Evanston fire stations.
Community members are encouraged to print or pick up a form, fill it out, and place it in their freezer. Pouches available for pick-up also contain a static cling sticker, which can be placed on a resident’s freezer to notify first responders that a File of L.I.F.E. form is inside.

This free community program is sponsored by the Evanston Police & Fire Foundation.

More information is available by calling or texting 847-448-4311.
