Who has your vital info in an emergency?
As the world faces the Coronavirus Covid-19, we need to ensure we have measures in place to take care of ourselves and others while isolating or in lockdown. Do you have the info you need for a hospital, paramedic, family member or emergency service in your area?
If we asked you your spouse or closest friend’s phone number, you’d get it off your phone, right? But what if your battery is flat or you need to hand all details to a medic?

The best way to ensure you have all the information you need to deal with potential Covid-19 and other emergencies – while avoiding data losses through hacks and service provider downtime – is to have a list, on paper, where it can be easily accessed.
About Emerge Crisis Plans
It is essential that we all have access to important numbers and resources, especially during load-shedding or loss of devices or connectivity, when the numbers we need may be on that device that. With the Coronavirus, Covid-19, being top of mind globally, it’s vital that individuals and families have a plan in the household that enables all of us to continue as near to normal as possible.
For example, do you know the name and strength of the medication you are taking? Your partner needs? They’ll ask you that at a hospital or doctor’s room… Do you know your domestic assistant’s next of kin or home address? What is your manager’s mobile number if you need to call?
Emerge Crisis Plans’ Household Management document does not require you to put any of your data online, but merely to fill in The List – information you’ll need to contact emergency and personal services and have speedy access to your staff, friends, delivery options and a variety of other information that may suddenly become important.
For just ZAR20.00 (or one Euro, US Dollar, British Pound) you get a PDF to print out and fill in so that everyone in your household is able to contact a service they may need in the midst of a Covid-19 scare or when the power goes out. For years, we’ve worked towards the “paperless office” – but sometimes, what we need is a paper document kept in a safe place that is simple and can be taken with you to your doctor or emergency room.
Fill in as many of the details as you can on your list. It may not be high-tech, but it can’t disappear when a mobile signal is lost or when your device runs out of battery power.
We will update you on news you need to know about Covid-19, tips to assist safety and power cuts – always for PREPAREDNESS and not PANIC. Sources will be credited and facts checked with expert organisations and trusted news platforms… for your peace of mind.
As of today, we have the Household Management Plan available and will have the Business Management Plan for SMB continuity ready shortly.
