The file of life is a holder for conveniently storing important information such as prescriptions, medical conditions, and emergency contacts in one place.
The large version comes with a magnetic strip to place securely on your refrigerator for easy visibility, for Emergency Responders who are trained to look for the prominent red and white file of life logo. This minimizes response time in an emergency.
A smaller version is available to store the same information in your wallet. Replacement file of life medical information cards are available through the Danvers Triad.
The Yellow Dot Program: Refers to a sticker that when fixed the window of a vehicle, alerts emergency responders that your medical information can be found in your glove compartment.

Lock Boxes are small key safes installed on the exterior of the home, usually at the top of the front door, of Danvers residents by the Danvers Fire Department. The program allows the Fire Department, the only ones with access to the key for the box, to enter a home if necessary, without resorting to breaking down doors or smashing windows.
The Lock Box Program is designed for the safety of isolated, frail, disabled, or otherwise vulnerable individuals, who live alone in Danvers. However, any Danvers resident who would like to purchase a LockBox may do so (see note 1). Knowing that emergency personnel can respond quickly can help to ease concerns of long-distance family members.
The LockBox is free for any Danvers resident who is either a Senior Citizen (60+) or Disabled. (see note 1)
Note 1: For Danvers Residents, who do not meet the age or Disability criteria, A lockbox can be purchased at the reduced rate of $85. Payment, in the form of a check, should be made out to the Town of Danvers.

Note 2: The Danvers LockBox Program was initiated by Danvers Fire Chief Kevin Farrell in 2011 with funds donated to the Town of Danvers by St. Mary's School. Children from the School raised the money by participating in a Walkathon, an annual event to raise funds for a worthy cause.
