PACE Presents Vial of Life Program at TOPS Meeting

PACE Paramedic Service EMT's Gary Sousa and Dan Gully presented the Vial of Life program at the July 31st meeting of TOPS (Taking off Pounds Sensibly) #ME 87 in South Paris. 

Mary Richards of TOPS had approached PACE about presenting the program at the meeting because she had heard of it and was "very impressed with the Vial program."  She shared that the members at the meeting were very pleased to have the presentation.

PACE has begun a "Vial of Life" program so that in case of an emergency, individuals have current health information written down and in a safe place.  This program is available to anyone at their request at no cost; PACE will visit your home, will help you fill out a health form and place the vial in your refrigerator.  A sticker is then placed on a window of your home letting ambulance services know that your health and medication information is available in a special vial in your refrigerator. 
To become involved with either program or for more information please call PACE Paramedic Service at 207-743-5933 x707 and leave your contact information on the message line.  If you need an ambulance, please do not use this number, instead, dial 911.
