Today while driving Eric to an appointment, a car in the next lane swerved and came very close to hitting us. We were OK and in that moment, not in real danger, but it still sent shivers down my spine.
One of the things I worry about is getting into a car accident while driving by myself with Eric. What if I become unresponsive? What would Eric do? Would he stay in the car? Would he try to get out and walk into traffic? Honestly, I try NOT to think about all the “what if’s”…..
But it reminded me to check and make sure all of my emergency information is properly updated in my phone as well as stored near my insurance and registration card in my glove box.
I had asked my “police officer husband”, Mr. Bacon, what kind of information I should have available and also asked what police would typically do in that situation. He reassured me that they will most likely look in glove box, or look in your phone for an emergency contact person.
So, take a few minutes today to make sure you have your information updated and available too!

Here are a few pictures of what I have in my car and phone profile – it’s nothing extravagant or detailed. I’m sure there are fancy templates you could print out to keep in your car – but no matter how much or how little information you choose to include – just make sure you include SOMETHING along with at least one emergency contact person and phone number (and preferably more than one!)
I hope you find this little reminder helpful! And I will hope and pray that none of us will ever be in a position to need it. But it can’t hurt to be prepared just in case!!!
