Emergency Contact Information

In an emergency, it is easy to "forget" even the most well-known information. That is why it is crucial for you to complete the information in this form for each member of your household. Make sure the contact sheet is kept in a place at your home that is accessible to all members of your family. It is also important to keep a copy in your car, place of work, and with you at all times. Be sure to update the information frequently.

Make copies for nonresident relatives, babysitters, caretakers, neighbors, teachers--anyone who has contact with you or who is periodically responsible for your children (or any disabled or elderly persons in your home).

In this age of technology, there are also option available for your smartphone. The ICE Standard with Smart911, The Official In Case of Emergency Standard Card App is available for most smartphone platforms. These are important tools that can increase the chance for survival in an emergency.
