"The Weirton Area Ambulance and Rescue Squad would like to stress to individuals how important it is to have and use the "File of Life" system.  The "File of Life" allows individuals to input recent medical history and list important information such as family doctor, preferred hospital, allergies, insurance, medications and more.  It allows the patient to answer questions on paper through the "File of Life" for emergency responders in the event the information cannot be acquired verbally.  The Paramedics and EMT's of the Weirton Area Ambulance and Rescue Squad use this very important life saving information to provide the best patient care possible for you or your family member.  Please keep the File of Life updated with most current medications and medical history," per Eric Zaney, Executive Director Weirton Ambulance Service.
