Complete a Family Communications Plan

Your plan should include contact information for family members, work, and school.  Your plan should also include information for your out-of-town contact, meeting locations, emergency services, and the National Poison Control Center (1-800-222-1222). 

Teach your children how to call the emergency phone numbers and when it is appropriate to do so.  Be sure each family member has a copy of your communication plan and post it near your telephone for use in an emergency.
