What does an emergency contact list have to do with being a Proverbs 31 woman or getting and staying organized? Whether you have a burst pipe or the babysitter needs to contact you, having an emergency contact list ready for all is a must.  You don’t want to be scrambling to find a phone number of poison control when your dog eats something that he or she shouldn’t have. (With four dogs, yes, this has happened in our home!)

Of course, you’ll need the numbers to the local fire and police departments, but there are other numbers that I suggest you keep on hand in case of, yep, an emergency.

When you think about a potential emergency, think of who you might call:

  • Doctor
  • Pediatrician
  • Veterinarian
  • Fire Department/Police (probably 911, but you should include the non-emergency numbers for these departments on your list, too)
  • Pharmacy
  • Dentist
  • Health/Dental/Vision Insurance Companies (and policy numbers)
  • Plumber
  • Electrician
  • Neighbors
  • Cable/Satellite Provider
  • Electric/Gas Company
  • Telephone Service
  • Water Company

Keep in mind that this list is for you and your family, but also might be used by a babysitter or house/dogsitter in your absence.

I recommend making a few copies of this list and laminating them. Post one on your refrigerator or family command center and keep one in your office.  Additionally, it’s a good idea to have a few non-laminated copies on hand to give to family or sitters who regularly visit your home.

Below you will find the emergency contact list that we use in our home.  Print it, fill it out and post it so that you and your family are ready in the event of an emergency.  No more panicked scrambling to find the number of the electric company when the lights go out.
