1. In the event there is an emergency we will contact your emergency contact listed.
We will inform your emergency contact of any emergency.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
In the event of an emergency, we will contact your nominated "Emergency Contact" immediately.
I realise that probably can't be described as brief, but I would have thought that given the context, it's important to get all the relevant information across, no matter how many words it takes.

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Welcome to the forums, Amanda.
For future reference, please note this extract from the Posting Guidelines:
'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
Emergency contact would have been a better (and briefer) title for this thread.
I think the briefest is unsaid completely.
Why else would you ask someone for an emergency contact if you were not planning to contact that person in the event of an emergency?
