Waverly, OH (January 20, 2014) – Fruth Pharmacy recently partnered with Green Township Fire Department to launch a program known as ‘Life Vial’.
“The EMTs and Firefighters came up with the idea of a Life Vial during one of their many emergency runs,” stated several members of the Green Township Day Crew Personnel, “oftentimes, spouses or family members were unsure of the medications their loved ones were taking. This information can be vital in an emergency situation.”
Fruth Pharmacy wanted to help support Green Township’s ideas to help their community. Fruth began working with Green Township to develop a way for patients to have their medical information ready in case of an emergency.
Life Vial is a specially designed plastic vial that contains life-saving medical information.
During an emergency run, Green Township Fire Department and EMTs will provide families with a Life Vial. In case of a similar emergency in the future, a family can be better prepared to help their loved one by having pertinent medical information available.
Upon receiving a Life Vial, a person needs to complete the paperwork inside the vial. There is also an option to connect your Life Vial information to an online medical account. The Life Vial should then be placed in a conspicuous place in the refrigerator. The Life Vial comes with two stickers. You can place these stickers in a window on your door or near your door. If you need life-saving emergency care, Green Township Firefighters and EMTs are trained to look for these stickers and for the Life Vial.
If your organization is interested in Life Vial, please contact Fruth Corporate offices in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, at 304-675-1612 and ask to leave a message for Lynne Fruth regarding the Life Vial program.
Fruth Pharmacy is a family-owned and operated business consisting of 27 locations in both Ohio and West Virginia. To learn more about Fruth Pharmacy please visit: www.fruthpharmacy.com
