Sunday cartoon: Displaying emergency phone numbers can save lives


BURRILLVILLE – The Fearless Dino Protector Squad recommends that every apartment and home have a list available and in plain site displaying emergency phone numbers.

Write down numbers for your local police and fire departments, and search online for your state’s poison control center and hotline in case of a poisoning. I would also suggest writing down, “911,” in the area that reads: Ambulance. In an area that reads, “Doctor,” write down your child’s pediatrician’s name and office phone number. It’s a good idea to keep contact information for all of your family’s doctors on the handy list.

Have your child or children color in the fire safety and burn prevention coloring cartoon, and talk with them about staying away from fire altogether. This great emergency phone numbers kids fire safety and burn prevention coloring poster can be displayed on family refrigerators anywhere and everywhere. It’s perfect for family and friend sleepovers, and also an excellent display item in your home for babysitters anytime during the entire year.

Writing down phone numbers for area hospitals is also important during an emergency. Write down the phone numbers for both the pediatric and general hospital in the area so everyone knows where to call, depending on the injuries and if it’s involving a hurt adult, teen or a child.
