Emergency Numbers Everyone Should Write Down

Having emergency numbers available in one place can save time and lives.

Beyond 911

We all know the simple three-digits to call if you need police, the fire department, or an ambulance. But there are other important numbers that can get you directly to someone with specialist training. In an emergency, minutes can mean a lot, so don’t waste them by looking up these key contacts you need to have at hand.

You may not have all of these types of numbers or needs, but if you do, having their contact information handy can be helpful.
