Southlake joins in on Vial of Life

Southlake Fire Services is now offering the Vial of Life program free to residents. The national program, which has already been picked up by neighboring Colleyville, provides important medical information to first responders in the event of an at-home emergency.

Residents who pick up a Vial of Life kit will be asked to complete medical information forms for everyone in the home. Program users will then place those forms, in a container marked "Vial of Life," inside their refrigerator and mark the fridge door or front door with the program decal alerting first-responders to look for the medical information.

Vial of Life kits are available at the fire services division of the city's DPS Headquarters, 600 State St. For more information, call EMS Lt. Ryan Arthur at 817-748-8328.
