  • Purchase an air horn to use in an emergency to alert neighbors to your emergency.
  • Complete the Medical Information Form for each person living in your coach and if needed, the Emergency Pet Care Form for any pets.  Place all completed forms in a sealed plastic storage bag in your refrigerator.  And finally, put a red Vial of Life label on the plastic storage bag with the completed forms and on the door of your motorhome to signal medical forms available in the refrigerator.  Note that the labels are located in the bottom right corner of the cubby shelf in the Laundry Room of the Clubhouse.
