WEST VALLEY CITY — City leaders in West Valley City honored resident Louise Tew at a City Council meeting Tuesday night for her contributions to the community.
Tew is involved in the city's Neighborhood Watch program and the Weed and Seed Steering Committee.
Last year, Tew suggested that the city adopt a "Vial of Life" program that encourages residents to compile personal information and keep the information in a place that is easily accessible by 911 responders in the event of an emergency.
The city launched its own "Vial of Life" program in March in partnership with Pioneer Valley Hospital. The program is free. Those who participate in the program place a "Vial of Life" magnet on their refrigerator that informs emergency personnel that a "Vial of Life" is kept inside the refrigerator.
The vial contains medical information on the residents in the house to help first responders act quickly.
