We live in an unpredictable world where anything can go wrong at any given time and yet, something are predictable and easily fore seeable but sadly most people like to pretend that they are the exception and that the said thing will not happen to them. If you have a house of your own or even if you live in a rental home, there is a chance that your home could get broken in to and therefore you need to take precautions. Having the police emergency number on hand and on speed dial could potentially save your life.
Make a list
It might come off as a little pessimistic but it would be a good idea to make a list of potential emergencies that you can get yourself in to and make another list of all the emergency numbers you could have on hand to either prevent the problem from occurring or to help make the situation better and a lot less trouble. As a driver of a car, you might want to consider having the phone numbers of a tow truck, a list of all garages in your country, the insurance company, the medical emergency number and the police on hand so that you can call them as soon as your experience a minor accident or a breakdown of your vehicle. If you do not have these numbers on hand, looking for them in the unfortunate case that you do experience a breakdown or an accident could waste precious time and if you have been injured in the accident, it could even be a matter of life and death.
It would be a good idea to have the number for an owner of a cheap tow truck from Brisbane who would be flexible about location and would be willing to come out to you wherever in the country you are because many garages may not be willing to come out to you if you have experienced your car break down far away from the town in the middle of nowhere. You will be surprised to see that most breakdowns, as luck would have it, tend to happen in the middle of nowhere.
It is also useful to have a locksmith that specializes in cases in case you ever lose your car key or lock in inside your car because a locksmith could use special techniques to open up your car from the outside without a key. No one thinks they will ever lose their car key but it is a fairly easy thing to misplace.
