ICE – In Case Of Emergency
Sometimes the unthinkable happens. A terrible accident and those involved aren’t able to provide rescuers with emergency contact information.
You’ll have people who you will want to contact to arrange help, give consent to treatment, and inform paramedics of medical conditions, allergies or medications.
Too often our police and rescue workers have to sift through pockets, glove compartments, wallets, purses and cell phones for clues, often wasting precious time.
A smart and simple solution is now spreading around the country: ICE. ICE- stands for In Case of Emergency, is a way to identify emergency contacts in your cell phone directory. Simply put ICE before a contact name, such as ICE- Dad, ICE-Mary or ICE-Doctor Jones. Rescuers will be able to quickly identify your emergency contacts, saving valuable time.
This powerful idea is now being heavily promoted throughout the U.S. and other countries. Rescue workers know of how many times they are unable to find a wallet or purse on an accident victim, yet they are seldom without their cell phones.
There are national and worldwide disaster data base, but participation can cost hundreds of dollars a year. ICE is free to the 276 million cell phone users in the U.S.
It’s easy and only takes a few minutes to designate your ICE contacts in your cell phone. Remember to keep the listings current.
