Why You Need Emergency Cards
If you’ve ever read my car organization post, you know that I had created emergency cards for my family “just in case” of an accident.
As a mom, my greatest fear is not knowing what will happen to my kids if I’m knocked unconscious or even die.
This is why I created the emergency cards and it has eased my mind a lot. In fact, I created one for each of our vehicles and one for each of our wallets and purse.
On my cards, I provide the following information:
- Names of my family members
- Any medical concerns that a first responder may need to know like allergies
- Important phone numbers
- And a person assigned to take immediate custody of my children
Now, wouldn’t that kind of information make you feel better? So, I decided to make one for you as well.
What’s On the Cards
I put together emergency cards that come in two different sizes depending on your needs.
The smaller size is 2″x3.5″ or 51mm x 89mm (about the size of a business card). And for larger families, I created one about the size of an index card, 3″ x 5″ or 7.6cm x 12.7cm. Below is a pic of the 3″ x 5″ cards.
Below I have provided an example of how you can fill out your cards.
As you can see, there is a space under the cross where you can draw a heart if you are an organ donor. Or you can also state this by the family member’s name. I also highlighted anything first responders would need to know right away.
And on the back, I’ve provided information so those first responders can contact an appointed person to take custody of your kids should something happen to you.
Let’s just say I like to prepare for the worst but hope for the best.
