The Emergency Contact List Every Homeowner Needs

All kinds of disasters can befall the average homeowner. Pipes can burst, the boiler can break down when it’s freezing outside, or you can get locked out when the children are still inside. As a responsible homeowner, you should have a list of emergency contacts to help you deal with these unexpected disasters

contact list

You should be prepared for any potential damage and other problems that could come up in your home. You should know who to call for common problems like burst pipes, being able to smell gas, the boiler breaking down and other similar issues. Keep these phones numbers on a list near the phone so you can find them quickly. This list should include the numbers for:

  • Water company
  • Electric company
  • Gas company
  • Electrician
  • Plumbers
  • Insurance company
  • Heat and Air Conditioning repair

Non-Emergency Home Services

You’ll also need to have phone numbers to hand that will help when something has gone wrong that isn’t life-threatening. Getting locked out, finding signs of mice and other home problems can be annoying but aren’t usually huge issues. For situations like this, you should have numbers for:

  • Pest control
  • A handyman
  • A trustworthy neighbour
  • Emergency contacts in the family

This is a useful list to keep in your phone for occasions where you need help, but don’t need a response instantly. It’s also useful to keep this list by the landline.

Medical Emergencies

These are some of the most important phone numbers to have on hand. Store them in your phone and put them somewhere obvious in the house, like pinned to the fridge or a family noticeboard. While these numbers are easy to find, it is wise to have them saved in case of a power outage. If you have children or pets, you will need a few more numbers to hand in case of a child or pet who is ill. These numbers should include:

  • Your family doctor
  • Poison Control Centre
  • Your regular vet
  • Emergency out-of-hours vet

As well as these phone numbers, you should also store all the important medical information for you, your family, and your pets. Store this information in a file on your computer or on the cloud, so you can access it quickly and easily. This information is also useful to be shared with any babysitters or petsitters. This file should include information like medical history, allergy information, wills, insurance information, and any medical derivatives. Having this information to hand can be very helpful in an emergency. 

Being prepared for all kinds of emergencies in the home, whether a child who has swallowed something dangerous, or a burst pipe, is the best way to keep you, your family, and your home safe. Keep emergency phone numbers and your information file somewhere safe. A physical copy of the phone numbers can be kept by the landline phone if you have one, or somewhere obvious, like on the fridge, if you don’t. Save them on your mobile phone too so you can access them away from home.
