My Medical Information
The Highland Park Fire Department is pleased to provide free My Medical Information kits to the senior citizens, those with special needs, and others within the City may need them. The kit consists of a red plastic pouch with a magnetic back and is intended to be attached to an individual's refrigerator. Inside the pouch is a cardboard pamphlet that an individual can use to write down his or her personal information, emergency contacts, medications, allergies, medical conditions, and advanced directives. Paramedics can can then use this vital information when providing emergency care. 

To obtain your free My Medical Information Kit contact Public Education Officer John Brens at 847.433.3110 or Provide your name and mailing address, and he will mail you a kit. You may also stop by Headquarters Fire Station at 1130 Central Avenue to pick one up.
