Emergency Contact Card for ChildrenAn important part of a family's emergency communications plan is identifying key emergency contacts, in case children are not with family when a disaster strikes. Electricity may be out, cell phone towers could be down, and local systems may be overwhelmed making it difficult to reach family and loved ones. Keep these contact cards in easily accessible locations such as in children's bags, lunch boxes, coats, or with school or child care staff.
