It was the worst and the scariest feeling ever, especially when thinking that I would have to ask my four and a half year old for help and that he wouldn’t know what to do.
Even though he is only 4 1/2 years old, I am very happy that he can read.
Lamination is optional, of course.
This is just for durability purposes.
I used a permanent marker to write the information down.
Also, laminating will be useful when information changes and I can simply erase the info and write the new one in its place.
This is what my refrigerator chart looks like and this is what it contains:
0. Stay calm and PRAY.
1. Call 911.
– What is your name?
– Where are you?
Our address is:
– Who is in trouble?
– What is the problem?
– When did this happen (a long
time ago or just now?)?
2. Check that the stove is turned off.
3. If help hasn’t come yet, go to the neighbor’s house to tell
If you are still on the phone with 911, DON’T hang up.
Dad: (xxx) xxx-xxxx
Dad’s work: (xxx) xxx-xxxx
It most definitely gives me peace of mind to know that my son will now know what to do and how to ask for help in case of an emergency.
