The emergency call list is a document that contains a long list of those numbers on which you can get help in case of emergencies. In most countries, emergency call number is a single number for the entire country and the people of that country are directed to use that number for all kinds of emergencies. The number is usually based on three digits that anyone can memorize easily. However, there are also some countries who have a long list of numbers for calling in an emergency that is usually difficult to remember and therefore people are recommended to make an emergency call list in order to ask for help in time. A good emergency call list should have all the important emergency numbers like fire brigade, hospital, police, poison control cell, child help, suicide prevention, woman help and many more. The phone numbers of such emergency help centers are usually available on the Internet as well as daily published in newspapers.
For creating a perfect emergency call list, it is important to list all government emergency numbers as well as private emergency control organizations and NGO’s numbers to ensure security. The emergency call list is important to have in every public places like parks, bus stops, public call booths, shopping malls, restaurants and hotels, in institutions, in hospitals, offices and even in homes. This is because emergencies never come after knocking at your door and therefore everyone should have an access to an emergency call list to ask for help immediately in any unexpected and life threatening situations. In schools and offices, it is the responsibility of the management to instruct students and employees about the list. It is good to place the list near a telephone, as this will provide convenience to the caller.

How to make an emergency call list?
- Make a list of different kinds of emergencies that you can think can take place in your area. For example list headings like emergency police numbers, hospital numbers, air ambulance services, fire brigade, child help, woman help, suicide prevention, poison control, environmental damage etc. It is good to use bold headings to write all these names. You can write them on a paper sheet or can use Microsoft Excel.
- List all the government and private emergency numbers that are local to you or your region, as in some countries each state or province has their own emergency call numbers.
- Write all the numbers under their categories like list all the emergency police numbers under the heading of police emergency numbers and so on. This is important to lits at least two or three numbers as if one number is out of reach the person can opt for the second one.
- Write the address of the location at the end of the sheet. Because it is due to fear and stress it is possible that the person feel some difficulty in telling the address to the emergency control officers. It is also possible that the person calling to the emergency control cell is new to the area.
