EMS Envelope of Life

West Deer EMS visited the residents of West Deer Manor to assist them with completing the Envelope of Life forms. During an emergency, there are times when patients are unable to speak or think clearly impeding the emergency responder’s efforts to help them. The lack of information may waste valuable time. The Envelope of Life is an easy-to-complete form that provides life-saving information to emergency responders.

The completed, brightly colored form is placed in a location easily identifiable to EMS personnel, most commonly on the refrigerator door.

Anyone wishing to obtain an Envelope of Life form can stop at the ambulance base or contact the EMS office at 724-265-3033.

This program is the start of our “Staying Well Together” initiative which will assist our medically vulnerable residents in the prevention of illness or injury.
