Emergency Information Form

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. Then, distribute copies to each member of your household. Also, post all copies by each telephone and in easy-to-find places in your home, car, or work. Be sure to update the information often.

Also, 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 older adults in your home).

If you own a cell phone, put two different contacts in your phone under ICE for "in case of emergency," so emergency room staff can call your contacts in the event you can not communicate. Examples could be ICE-mom or ICE-husband to identify your contact. Newer smartphones have apps that you can download to make this information easier to access. Do not rely on your smartphone however, as it may be out of power, overlooked, or not on you at the time. It is still critical to have additional copies of this form.
