ok...calm down!
These are the numbers your going to need:
-Posion Control [in case the child ate something toxic]
-The Parent's Numbers
-Your Parent's Numbers [which you should know]
-Local hospital number

Most likely, the child will not get hurt or anything like that.

But just in case, here is a babysitting help site.

That will provide everything you need to know!
Even other important numbers!

Hope I helped!

I took a red cross class and i have a baby sitting manual, these are the numbers that my instructor and the manual said

1. Poison Control
2. Fire Department
3. Mom's cell
4. Dad's cell
5. Doctor (in case the kid got sick and you couldn't reach the 'rents)

also about the first aid, make sure you ask the parents where the bandaid and medicine cabinents are, make sure you know cpr and the hemlich

see if ur local hospital has a babysitting class to ofer. they are helpful with the firstaid things and make sure u have a number ofa neighbor a number you can reach the parents. definitely 911. and a poision control center number might be helpful make sure you give them your cell number ( if you have one ) incase you don't want to or feel uncomfortable answering their phone.

You should have :
The Parent's cell numbers
The number of the place the parents will be at
A neighbor's Number
Poison Control
obviously 911
and the number of a hospital near by

you should know first aid.... for babies and children there are different heimlic maneuvers than for adults so you would need to learn them also first aid is treating injuries...

you should also have a list of allergies and medicines they could use... make sure you know where their fire extinguisher is, flashlights, band aids and stuff you think you might need incase of an emergancy

I babysit all the time and i always ask the parents for cell phone numbers, pediatric numbers for their kids, poison control number, nearby realitives numbers or neighbors. ask the parents where they keep their bandaids and such just in case one of the kids gets hurt. CPR isnt necessary but is helpful. Ask parents when the kids nap/bedtime is too. if you have anymore babysitting questions, you can ask me. i babysit for a family with 3 small children about twice a week.

Numbers you should have on hand:

Parents cell phone numbers
Number of where parents are going
Local Poison Control
A neighbor of where you're babysitting

First aid:

You should know how to properly care for all types of wounds from minor to severe, including puncture wounds.
You should know how to treat burns
Know how to attend to an unconcious child
Know the heimlich manuever
Know CPR
Know what to do in the case of possible strains/sprains/or broken bones
Know how to care for an ill child

Your local YMCA should have a summer camp open called Babysitters Camp, its a great resource for present and future babysitters. They will teach you everything you need to know from all your first aid techniques, activities to do with the children, things to cook, how to change diapers, all of that. Also look into Red Cross training sessions for babysitters, and see if your local hospital might have a babysitting class.
