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.
