Welcome to Mission #13 of our 52 Get Organized Missions.
Having all our emergency contact numbers in one neat list is a personal organization task we know we should tackle, but one we don’t always get around to.
If you’ve created some order with your finances after completing the previous mission (Get Organized Mission #12: Organize Your Accounts & Credit Cards), congratulations.
With my nifty Emergency Contact List Worksheet, the task becomes a breeze. (We’ve had a few challenging missions lately, so I figure it’s time for an easy one.)
This is an important mission – and one that will bring you peace of mind.
Remember: you only need 30 minutes for the basic mission. Extended Options are below. If you’re new, you might like to start here: 52 Organizing Missions.
Get Organized Mission #13:
Organize Your Emergency Contacts
Step 1: Download the Emergency Phone Contact List
I’ve provided you with an Emergency Phone Contact List Worksheet for this mission.
It’s an interactive PDF, so you can Type-&-Save or Print-&-Write.
This worksheet is from my The Ultimate To-Do List Pack | Home & Family Edition. Download it by clicking the link below.[drain file 734 show blog_left]
Step 2: Fill it in
It will probably take you most of the 30 minutes to locate and fill in the information. Off you go!
Step 3: Place it where you’ll look in an emergency
You might want to make several copies and leave one on the fridge, one by the phone and one in the study.
And keep an extra copy for next week’s mission – we’ll be creating a home-management binder system.
Dos & Don’ts
- Don’t leave out any of the emergency numbers, even if you know them off by heart. This list will be a handy resource for the kids, babysitters, house-sitters, and visitors too.
- Do update the list when you change locations or preferred tradespeople.
Extended Organizing Mission Options
Want to go beyond this 30-minute organizing mission?
- Show the list to the kids and explain which numbers to use in which situations. Don’t be scary about it – just explain that it’s a good organizational strategy to have these numbers handy.
- What other emergency contingencies does this bring to mind? It might be a good time to tackle other seasonal or emergency preparations.
Ready, Set, Go!
Remember – move quickly, act fast, don’t overthink.
