ICE (In Case of Emergency)

A friend forwarded this to me in an email. It sounded like a reasonable thing to do, so I thought I would post it here…

“Paramedics will turn to a victim’s cell phone for clues to that person’s identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone no. of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your cell phone NOW!

Please pass this one along”

  1. I.C.E. is a great idea but it is not enough…
    – What if your cell phone is lost or damaged in an accident?
    – What if you do not have a cell phone or have it with you at the time I.C.E. is needed?
    – What if your emergency contacts are not available when the First Responders try to call?
    – What if the buttons are locked?
    First Responders need more than just I.C.E.
    The Med Alert Card is more reliable than I.C.E. and provides more vital information.
