Cool-Aid Home Safety

The Cool-Aid program helps first responders locate important medical information in the event of an emergency. 

If an emergency happens in your home, you or your family members may not be able to communicate important medical information — details like medical conditions, medication, allergies, physician and pharmacist contacts — to emergency personnel. 

A magnetized pouch that is easily identifiable by first responders as part of the Cool-Aid program is placed on the fridge door. The pouch contains a list of important medical information. 

VON-trained volunteers with medical backgrounds will periodically contact you to ensure your information is up to date.

We offer a similar program in Nova Scotia, called Vial of Life.
