“ICE ” Your Phone


Apparently this is a standard procedure paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they come across your cell phone.

ICE – ‘In Case of Emergency

We all carry mobile phones with names & numbers stored in memory but no one can tell which of these numbers belong to family or friends you would like to be notified in case of an emergency.

If are involved in an accident or suddenly taken ill, the first responders may have access to your mobile phone but wouldn’t know who you want to be notified of your situation. Yes, there are hundreds of contacts stored but which one do you want contacted in an emergency situation? Hence, this ‘ICE’ (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.

The concept of ‘ICE’ is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell (mobile) phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a person or persons you would like to be contacted with the letters ‘ICE’ (In Case of Emergency).

The idea was developed by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with injured, but he didn’t know who to notify. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency, responding personnel and hospital staff should be able to quickly call the person you want to be notified. Reaching the right person can be as simply as dialing the number you have stored as ‘ICE.’ For more than one contact, simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. This is a good idea that will benefit loved ones.

Spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in your phone.

ICE will speak for you when you are not able.
