Family Emergency KIT Checklist

What should I prepare?

  • Let your center know about any updated contact information

    such as a new address, phone, cell, and e-mail. This is important information for their electronic medical records.

  • Wear a medical alert bracelet or necklace

    so that medical and emergency workers know what medications to give and what injuries to look for. For infants or toddlers, placing a medical alert tag on the child’s car seat and stroller in case parent and child are separated can be helpful. Toddlers and children should wear medical alert bracelets, not chains or necklaces since they can become a choking hazard. Medical alert bracelets can be purchased at drug stores and online.

  • Keep your own medical records and update them frequently.

  • Always have emergency stock of your medications

    and bring them with you to the emergency room, if possible. Make sure to follow proper storage directions.

  • Make sure that a nearby relative or friend

    also has your medical history and emergency contact information readily on hand.
