poison and emergency numbers
Sat, 08-21-2004 - 11:12am

I just realized this past week that I don't have any emergency numbers written down. Someone had asked for our pediatricians number and I normally know all the important numbers off the top of my head. When I had to go to the phone book and look the number up it really scared me. What if it had been an emergency?

I just wanted to make this something everyone does this week! Even if you are pregnant, you can get the numbers for your local fire dept., your GP, OB, dentist, pediatrician, night-time pediatrics, poison control, parents, a neighbor or other trustworthy person that lives close to you.

If you are unlike me and already have a list, make sure it is up to date.

I am working on my list right now. I just bought a personal organizer so I will never forget an appointment or an important phone number (especially in an emergency).

Here is the number for Poison Control... 1-800-222-1222

I am not sure if this is only for the US, other countries may have to check.
