Vial of Life

Well, hunh.
The Vial of Life or Vial of L.I.F.E. (Lifesaving Information For Emergencies) is a program which allows individuals to provide medical information in advance that can be used by emergency personnel in the case of an emergency. Vial of Life programs are usually sponsored and promoted by Senior citizen's organizations, local Fire Departments, or hospitals, although it may be utilized by anyone. The materials required are usually available for free and some may be downloaded and produced by the individual.
Emergency responders are trained to look for notes in the refrigerator. Makes sense, if a bit odd sounding at first - everyone has a refrigerator.
