Maintaining Emergency Contacts

The Emergency Contacts menu item opens a list of your emergency contact people and some of their contact details.

Select one of the Contact Name links listed to view and edit details for any individual contact. Use the Add new Emergency Contact record link to add a new contact person.

Use the optional Priority field to set the priority order in which you would like us to make contact in the event of an emergency. Use 1 for your first (top) priority contact, 2 for the second, etc.

Title is an optional field and needs to be selected from a drop down list.

Note that Surname is mandatory, but Relationship is optional (nevertheless may be useful to include). At least one contact detail must be added to the record (Work Phone, Home Phone, Mobile Phone, Email Address or Address). You are encouraged to include as many contact details as possible.
