There are some numbers you should always have in your phone. Don’t wait for a disaster to strike or for a problem to occur. These are numbers you should have in your phone at all times. You might think you’ll just look up the numbers if anything occurs, but in a state of emergency you don’t want to be wasting your time looking them up nor can you expect you’ll always get WiFi wherever you are. So, here are the numbers you should always have in your phone.

When the power goes out in a storm, there’ll be very few calls you’ll want to make in order to save your phone battery, but one of them will be to your electric company. When the power goes out there is no internet service and you don’t want to be fumbling in the dark looking for a phone book to look up the number.
8. Insurance Company
Keep your various insurance companies handy in your phone. This is vital in case of a car accident or injury. It's easier to have them all handy, just in case.
