This is not a very entertaining topic but unfortunately an important one especially if you have a little dare devil toddler…and because there are lots of nasty bugs and sicknesses going around at the moment…here are the emergency contact numbers:

's-Graveland, Ankeveen, Baarn, Blaricum, Bussum, Driemond, Eemnes, Hilversum, Holland Rading, Houses, Kortenhoef, Lage Vuursche Laren NH, Loosdrecht, Muiden, Muiderberg, Naarden, Nederhorst den Berg, Nigtevecht, Soestdijk, Vreeland and Weesp. You need to ring the Huisartsenpost at Tergooi Blaricum Tel: (0900) 93 59.

I hope you will never need to use these numbers…but keep them safe in case you do…
