"In Case of Emergency"

I have found this program to be a worthwhile effort and I urge you to read on ....

Ice in your cell phone

The original concept, conceived by Cambridge paramedic Bob Brotchie, involved putting the acronym ICE in front of your designated emergency contact in your cell phone address list.

Follow these hints to get the best out of ICE:

<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>Make sure the person whose name and number you are giving has agreed to be your ICE partner<LI>Make sure your ICE partner has a list of people they should contact on your behalf - including your place of work<LI>Make sure your ICE person's number is one that's easy to contact, for example a home number could be useless in an emergency if the person works full time<LI>Make sure your ICE partner knows about any medical conditions that could affect your emergency treatment - for example allergies or current medication.<LI>Make sure if you are under 18, your ICE partner is a parent or guardian authorized to make decision on your behalf - for example if you need a life or death operation.<LI>Should you your preferred contact be deaf, then prefix the number with ICETEXT.[/list]------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have just recently added the acronym ICE to selected entries in my address book on my cell phone and so has Colleen. A very simple system, we never thought about it but hey there's a good chance that if you're in a wreck or incapacitated somehow your cell phone may be the answer to get someone quickly in the event of an Emergency that knows something about you. There's an excellent chance that your cell phone will be close by and so it becomes a resource that an emergency worker can quickly get additional critical information about you.

The important thing though is to inform the ICE person listed that they are shown as an ICE contact on your cell phone.

Discussions about ICE are now open .....

I have to agree with you..the "ICE" program has been mentioned for the past few months via e-mail, forums like this & various other venues.
If even for one or two contacts, folks, it's a great yet simple idea.
Make a move (touch) today!
