I am requesting that you ( yes you reading this) download the following form and complete them for yourself. Have your family members do the same.

Health Care Proxy and File of Life

EMS providers make some of the worst patients (myself included).  We all get sick, and accidents happen. Save yourself or your family unnecessary stress by having pertinent information available for your colleagues.

Recently Steve showed me his HANYS Health Care Proxy Wallet Card.  I encourage you and your significant other to complete one, and carry yours and a copy of your paramour’s as well.

We added the Health Care Proxy Card to our Resources Page with the updated File of Life sheets.

Complete them now, and put them in your purse/wallet/planner today.
