I’m Giving Away Vials of Life to Kirkland Highlands Home Owners

In Kirkland News, Kirkland WA, Safety and Disaster Preparedness on December 1, 2008 at 5:19 am

Vial of LifeFrom now through December 14th, I will give Vial of Life bottles to people in the Kirkland Highlands. The Vials are free, but if you send me an email message, I will drop a vial(s) off on your doorstep.

What is The Vial of Life? The Vial of Life is a large pill bottle which contains a sheet of paper with your medical and emergency contact information.  The sheet is stored in the vial and then placed in your refrigerator.  The Vials were put together by members of The Kirkland Senior Council and The Bellevue Network on Aging in conjunction with Bartell’s and Medic One.

How do first responders know the vial is there? A sticker is placed on your front door or window and a magnet goes on your refrigerator. Everything you need has been placed in each vial and is ready for you to use.

The vial is a terrific way to help keep you safe in unexpected emergencies. Think about people who’ve had to go to the emergency room and they’ve been unconscious.  They’ve been unable to tell someone they have medical issues such as high blood pressure or are allergic to a particular medication.  Don’t let this happen to you! It could be a matter of life and death.

You can pick the vials up at Bartells’ Drug for $1.00. but The Kirkland Senior Council still has a supply we can give out for free.  I’ll drop the Vial on your doorstep, so you don’t even need to be home!
