Operation Red File

Protect Your Critical Health Information

In partnership with the Kansas Senior Medicare Patrol, Operation Red File was designed to help seniors keep their critical health information protected and accessible if needed in an emergency. The folder attaches to the refrigerator for easy access by first responders.

Participants are encouraged to put copies of their medical information and other critical documents in the folder, such as a clear, current photograph of the participant; a medical form with all current medical information; a medication list that can be updated as needed; and medical coverage information.

First responders and emergency staff can use this information to:

  • Instantly access medical history and medication records in an emergency
  • Avoid delays caused by trying to get information from a confused patient
  • Ensure that the family/responsible party will be notified quickly
  • Have a photograph available in the case of a Silver Alert

What's Included in the Operation Red File Packet

Each Operation Red File packet includes the following:

  • A large, red, pocket folder with button closure
  • Two magnets with adhesive backing
  • ‘How to Use Operation Red File’ cover sheet
  • Fillable ‘Medical Information’ form
