60-second safety: Write down emergency contacts

This safety series is designed to help you prepare your family for life’s emergencies — big and small — and keep you as safe and healthy as possible when Mother Nature or life throws the unexpected your way. Take the next minute to help make yourself and your family safer.

Create an emergency communications plan.

If an emergency caused you to lose or disable your phone, would you know your family members’ phone numbers? Would your children?

Cut out this form and fill it in with at least two family emergency contact numbers. Make sure that you let your emergency contacts know that your family will be calling them to check in after an emergency. (Consider this a great excuse to call your mother; it may take more than a minute, but it will be worth it).
