Emergency Cards - Helping First Responders in the case of an Emergency in Santa Rosa, California 

An Advanced Health Care Directive or HIPPA Authorization is only good if it is implemented at the time it is most needed, when a first responder provides care.  When an Ambulance arrives, when the fire department respond to a call or when the Highway Patrol are called how will you inform these key people of your medical information and status?
