Once a caravan is Full, we start a Stand-by list.  If you would like to go on a caravan,
but it is full, please call HQs at 800-354-7681 or 850-478-1986

The VIAL OF LIFE form is replacing the Medical Questionnaire that SMART has used in the past.  It
will be your responsibility to fill out this form and place it into a container and place in either the freezer
or refrigerator of the RV in case of an emergency.  Remember, by keeping this information updated
and current, it may save your life.  It can also be used in your home and car as vital information for first
responders and or medical personnel during a time of medical emergency.  

There are two copies of the
VIAL OF LIFE available. One in EXCEL (can be saved, updated and
printed) and the other one in a
PDF format for those of you who don’t have EXCEL or Open Office
(Sun Microsystems).
