  • Make it possible for EMT’s to provide your information to the ER so they are fully prepared when you arrive.

Is easy to load and use, so let’s get started!

First, insert your MedFOB into the USB port of your laptop or PC. (Photo A)

It will take a few moments for MedFOB to load. If MedFOB doesn’t load on your screen within 20 seconds, it may be due to your security settings.

Simply go to "My Computer" and double left click on the MedFOB logo. Look for the file called "OpenMedFOBhere.exe" and double left click on it to open your MedFOB software.

First you will need to click on "Agree" to the End User License Agreement. Then you will be directed to set up your password.

Once you have setup your password you are ready to add or edit information on your MedFOB.
