Use this printable emergency contact form to protect yourself, your family, and your home in a worst-case scenario situation. This emergency contact list is an easy and inexpensive “insurance policy.”
According to the National Emergency Number Association, in the United States, approximately 240 million calls are made to 9-1-1 every year. That’s a lot! However, those aren’t the only emergencies that happen. For example, a gas leak is an emergency for which one would call the gas company.
What I’m trying to say is there are numbers you need to know outside of your basic 9-1-1! That’s where this printable emergency contact form template comes in handy.
With this emergency contact list template you can collect both emergency contact numbers as well as information such as where crucial resources, like the family’s first aid kit, are located. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to organize vital information. Seriously, this is an instance where organization could literally save a life!

The first thing you’ll probably notice about this emergency contact information form is how colorful it is. The colors serve two purposes. One, to add a little cheer; after all, an emergency hasn’t happened yet and now if one does happen, you’ll be ready! Two, to help organize all the different fields.
One issue I’ve had with emergency contact form templates in the past is that everything just blends together. There’s just line after line of black text and finding the specific piece of information you’re looking for in that text haystack isn’t quick. And every second counts in an emergency!

How to Use the Emergency Contact List Template
The first step to using this printable emergency contact form template is to fill it out in full! But, after you fill it out, what comes next?
There are multiple ways you can put this emergency contact list template to use. Here are just a few ideas:
- Place it in your home in a high traffic / high visibility area such as on the fridge. Make sure your entire family knows that it’s there.
- Give one to someone else that may be a “witness” to an emergency such as a neighbor, babysitter, or house sitter.
- Place a completed emergency contact information form in your kid’s student planner printable or make sure the school has it on file.
- Place it in your daily planner 2022, so you have a copy on hand at home or work.
- Create an emergency contact book. (See the next section.)
Idea: Make an Emergency Contact “Book”
This idea is big enough that it deserved it’s very own section! 🙂
As already mentioned, the printable emergency contact form has space for both your personal information as well as three emergency contacts. However, these fields would not be the same for every family member, right? For instance, you can’t be your own emergency contact but you would be one of the emergency contact numbers for your kid.
That’s why you may want to create an emergency contact “book” by printing one of these forms for each family member and then bundling them together. A lot of the information would be the same from form to form, but fields that you may want to personalize are:
- Personal info.
- Emergency contacts.
- Emergency numbers if someone in your family uses a different doctor, dentist, etc.
- Allergies (under medical insurance).
- Medications (under medical insurance).
You can then give this emergency contact “book” to the babysitter, for example, so he or she has specific information for each child (or perhaps even each pet).
Food “Emergency” Printables
Okay, maybe being hungry isn’t a real emergency but some people (not mentioning any names) can get pretty darn crazed when they’re hangry! Unfortunately this printable emergency contact form template can’t do much for food “emergencies.” Fortunately, I have a few printables that can help prevent them! 🙂
I hope this printable emergency contact form helps you and your family stay safe.
