Health Tip: Keep Emergency Phone Numbers on Hand

-- When young children are in your care, it's important to have a list of emergency phone numbers within easy reach.

The Nemours Foundation says these numbers should be on every caregiver's emergency list:

  • The number for poison control -- 1-800-222-1222.
  • The number for ambulance, police or fire -- 911.
  • The number for the child's doctor.
  • Numbers for the child's parents, including work and cell phones.
