Important Numbers 

In an emergency it's good to have all the important numbers in one place. Often in a panicked situation, our mind freezes so if we know where to go, where to look, we can get the appropriate help we need quickly.

NB: You can print this page if you wish and put it somewhere near your phone, save it as a PDF or email it to your smart phone. None of these actions will include the photos so you will have just the essentials.
