Plan: Emergecy Contacts

Complete an emergency contact card and make copies for each member of your office family to carry with them. Be sure to include an out-of-town contact on your contact card. It may be easier to reach someone out of town if local phone lines are out of service or overloaded. You should also have at least one traditionally wired landline phone, as cordless or cellular phones may not work in an emergency.

Visit or for sample emergency contact cards. Remember in Large offices department lists may be more efficient than a phone book of emergency contacts. Update the list on a regular basis, at the begining and midway through hurricane season and immediately after new-hires are added.
