This is really, really important, as we found out in my former community when 
someone died and we had to contact his family. We did have a good list and we 
were able to give the police the contact info. It would have been very 
difficult otherwise. 
Some people were reluctant to give out their emergency contact info. In a 
couple cases, I think it was because their contact was someone else in the 
community and they didn't want everyone knowing the seriousness of their 
relationship. So we made it clear that the information would be kept 
confidential. We put a person known for discretion in charge of collecting the 
info and maintaining the file. We announced to the community that a printed 
copy of the list would be kept in a sealed envelope in a locked supply closet 
that was accessible to only a handful of residents with the right key. This 
provided a good mix of security and immediate availability. If you leave the 
list on someone's computer, chances are good that person will be at work or out 
of town when you need it.
