Here are some tips on emergency numbers to help with the safety of others and yourself: Lists should include the local fire department, the local police department, nearest hospital, personal and family physicians, and Poison Control.


When in doubt, always call 911.


Statistics show, that in a panic situation and in an unfamiliar home, the exact location of your whereabouts is not always clear.


  • Clearly print the address of your residence. 
  • Always obtain the address of the household in which you are responsible for the safety of others and yourself. Post this list near the telephone, on the refrigerator, or bulletin board.
  • Communicate to everyone as to where the list will be posted.
