Q. What if more than one person in my home uses the Vial of Life? How will paramedics know which Vial belongs to which person if more than one is unconscious?
A. Please include a recent photo or brief physical description in your Vial. The form has a place for your age and gender which will also help emergency responders identify which Vial belongs to which person. Even if you live alone, a photo is helpful in case guests or visitors are also at your home during an emergency.
