ICE campaign - "In Case of Emergency"

We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its

memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers

belong to our closest family or friends.

If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the

people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to

call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the

contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency)


The concept of "ICE" is catching on quickly. It is a method of

contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the

majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a

contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under

the name "ICE" (In Case Of Emergency).

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went

to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients,

but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it

would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this

purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and

hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing

the number you have stored as "ICE".

For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3,

etc. Be sure it's in your kid's cell phones also. A great idea that will

make a difference!

Please forward this. It won't take too many "forwards" before

everybody will know about this. It really could save your life, or put a

loved one's mind at rest.

Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our

Mobile phones today!
