If you’re like most people, you need to set up an emergency list – that way, if a disaster strikes your home, your babysitter, house-sitter or whomever else is there knows how to get in touch with people who need to know and what to do in the event of an emergency. But what should you put on it?
What to Put on an Emergency List
Everyone will have a different group of people who need to be notified in case of an emergency, but this is about more than just contacts. It includes information that you need to have handy if you’re displaced from your home or something happens:
- Preferred phone numbers for all homeowners (include work and cell phone numbers)
- Your doctor’s phone number
- List of medications everyone in the household takes
- Other contacts, such as trusted neighbors, relatives or friends who are local
You might also want to keep a medical authorization form with your emergency list, as well as insurance information.
