How does the EMS call my Wife

My Question is: The wife is back at the RV and I am out with the toad shopping and something happens to me.
How does the EMS know where I am staying so they can contact my wife.
Does anyone carry something each time they go to a new CG?
Do you have ICE [in case of emergency]on your cell?

I have ICE on my cell phone listing my wifes's cell phone number. She rarely has her phone with her so she should get the message in a day or two. LOL

We have ICE on both of our cell phones, and based on a suggestion here at the forum we'll also carry in our billfolds information about the campground & site number we're currently staying in...never hurts to be prepared

As Ronnie says. Have either a single entry or a group in your cell phone called ICE or I C E

In Case Of Emergency

Single entry is who you want called

Group entry is who to call in order

Or you can have I C E 1, I C E 2, I C E 3 if your phone does not allow grouping

ICE 1 is my wife
ICE 2 is my daughter


EMT will scroll through the list and call ICE numbers till he gets an answer

From a BMW motorcycle forum I frequent:

Quote:
A woman was in town on a shopping trip. She began her day finding the most perfect shoes in the first shop and a beautiful dress on sale in the second. In the third, everything had just been reduced by 50 percent when her cell phone rang. It was a female doctor notifying her that her husband had just been in a terrible car accident and was in critical condition and in the ICU.

The woman told the doctor to inform her husband where she was and that she'd be there as soon as possible. As she hung up she realized she was leaving what was shaping up to be her best day ever in the boutiques. She decided to get in a couple of more shops before heading to the Hospital. She ended up shopping the rest of the morning, finishing her trip with a cup of coffee and a beautiful chocolate cake slice, compliments of the last shop. She was jubilant.



Then she remembered her husband. Feeling guilty, she dashed to the hospital. She saw the doctor in the corridor and asked about her husband's condition. The lady doctor glared at her and shouted, "You went ahead and finished your shopping trip, didn't you! I hope you're proud of yourself! While you were out for the past four hours enjoying yourself in town, your husband has been suffering in the Intensive Care Unit! It's just as well you went ahead and finished, because it will more than likely be the last shopping trip you ever take!" "For the rest of his life he will require round-the-clock care. And he will now be your career!" The woman was feeling so guilty, she broke down and sobbed. The lady doctor then chuckled and said, "I'm just pulling your leg. He's dead. Show me what you bought."
Can anyone envision that happening if EMS called Sandy regarding me?

my new phone came with a default entry in the CONTACT list called I-C-E. All you need to do is fill it in. I have my wife and two daughters listed in mine, me and two daughters in hers.

We only have 1 phone, so if my wife is out and has the phone, no one can contact me unless they know what campground to call. We both carry a small sheet in our wallets that has a list of medications, allergies, doctor contact info, etc. The sheet also has a place (which has to be updated every time we stop) that lists the campground where we are staying, our site number, the description of our motorhome. It also states that if our dog is not with us, she is back at the motorhome and needs to be tended to if something happens to both of us.

We have ICE1. 2, and 3 on my dell phone. A big disadvantage with this is that quickly you forget the actual number as you just click on the right ICE number to call them. If you don't have your phone with you and you need to call one of them, you don't know their number. I still remember my wife's number, but my daughter and son-in-law as ICE2 and 3, I have no clue. You should keep them in your wallet also.

Good point Lindsay, at my advanced age, I do the same as you on the ICE numbers, heck with my memory, I even find it necessary to carry the number of the cell phone I share with DW.

What makes it really hard is that all three of us have ICE1, 2, and 3 and they are all different on each phone.

When ever we check into a campground that we know we may be leaving with the toad, we each place the name of the campground and our site number on a piece of paper and keep it close to our driver's license. We use our Good Sam business cards for this.

Instead of fooling with the ice stuff, just have an entry for "wife", "daughter", or whatever floats your boat. The ICE acronym has different meanings to different agencies. When you are incapacitated and require EMS, the last thing they bother with is "where is the patients cell phone". Having worked as an EMT for 3 years in the past, EMT's are not concerned with notifying anyone except the ER that they have a patient and are xxx number of minutes from delivery. The best advice was to keep emergency contacts in your wallet/purse, and that may only be opened by law enforcement. Write contact info in pencil, ink runs and blurs when wet.

P.S. Never did locate you at the balloon festival. Even had a hospitality woman drive us around through the VIP section for about 30 minutes to no avail. Hope you had a great time also, we sure did. Sounds like that 70 yr old man falling out of the balloon basket got you thinking about notifying NOK too.
