What is the Vial of Life Program?
The Vial of Life program helps you to compile personal information and have it available for 911 responders in the event of an emergency.
The Petaluma Fire Department has a plastic bag with a large red Vial of Life sticker on it. Inside of the bag there are directions on the process as well as the Vial of Life Emergency Medical Information Form.
How Does the Vial of Life Work?
After the Vial of Life form has been completed and placed back in the Vial of Life bag, notify Petaluma Fire Department of the location it has been placed along with your address. We will then relay this information to our dispatch center.
In the event of a medical emergency, dispatch will relay Vial of Life information location to paramedics. The paramedics will then have the vital medical information they will need to begin treatment.
How Do I Get a Vial of Life?
The Vial of Life packet can be picked up at Petaluma Fire Department Headquarters -198 D Street.
Petaluma Fire Department will mail you a packet by request.
