BLF Tip of the Week
Emergency Contact Cards:
When real emergencies happen you need to be able to get in touch with people. This includes family members, doctors, and sometimes, your lawyer. Most of us use our cell phones as a personal pocket computer and rely on it to store our important emergency contact information. But what happens if in the emergency your cell phone is broken, out of power, or seized by law enforcement? What good is a phone number you can’t access?
I recommend that you always keep an emergency contact card in your wallet or purse that contains information for the individuals you will most likely need in a jam. You can place several numbers on the card and even laminate it. The cost is minimal but the value in an emergency is huge. We also recommend that our clients keep a card in their wallet or purse just in case something unplanned happens. Prepare for the worst but hope for the best.
