USAFIS: Important Emergency Numbers to Know

When living in the U.S., it’s important to have emergency phone numbers on hand for times when you need to reach people. When we are in emergency situations, it’s easy to become disoriented and forget phone numbers, names, and more. By making a list ahead of time, you can easily find the information you need in case of an emergency.

You can put the numbers on your refrigerator door, in your contacts list in your cell phone, or any place where they can easily be remembered and accessed.
