Town of Windsor Emergency Services Toy Drive: Project Santa
Members of Windsor’s emergency services come together to collect toys and donations to help local families and children in need have a better Christmas. We collect unwrapped toys and monetary donations for Project Santa to buy gifts for less fortunate families in Windsor.
The drive is always held on a Saturday and Sunday in December from 9:00AM to 3:00PM in front of the Public Safety Complex on Bloomfield Ave in Windsor. The 2019 toy drive was a huge success! Thank you to all of those who donated or volunteered!
Vial of L.I.F.E.
The 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 services personnel.
The program consists of a vial (empty pill bottle), labeled with a Vial of Life sticker, and inside is a medical form which you fill out containing your personal and health information along with current medications being taken. The vial is placed in the refrigerator, usually recommended to be on the top shelf of the door, because it has been shown that the refrigerator’s contents are preserved in the event of a fire. Stickers are placed in the front window of the home so that responding emergency personnel will know to look for the Vial.
Windsor EMS sponsors the Vial of L.I.F.E program for residence of the Town of Windsor. All the required materials are available for free from Windsor EMS.
For information on obtaining a Vial of L.I.F.E. please contact Windsor EMS at (860) 688-8244.
