File of Life Information

The Thornton Fire Department is offering free File of Life kits. File of Life is a simple program that could quickly improve quality of care during emergencies.  Citizens can write down and easily update their important medical information on the form, store it in the magnetic file and place it where it is easily accessible to first responders in a medical emergency – on the REFRIGERATOR DOOR. A label is also provided that can be used to place on the front door so first responders can see it as they walk in the home.

The file also provides first responders with pertinent information about someone who cannot speak for himself or herself about medical conditions.


It lists all of your Emergency Medical and Health information in one place. Thornton Fire will look for these red files when responding to a call at your home. This information can SAVE YOUR LIFE!

Pick up your FREE KITS at any Thornton Fire Station or Fire Administration and the Active Adult Center.

You will receive:

  • File of Life medical cards
  • Red refrigerator sticker to hold the medical cards
  • Window sticker for your home

Be sure to fill one out for each member of your family!  Call 303-538-7602 for more information.
