Information you’ll need to provide

Depending on who you contact during an emergency they will likely ask you some personal questions, contact information, and for more information about the emergency you are facing.

Helpful tips

  • Ensure that the phone numbers are saved in more than one location. If power is not available during a storm you will want access to be able to access these phone numbers.
  • Include friends, family, relatives, neighbors, colleagues, etc that you would potentially contact during a storm or emergency.
