“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.

A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors ignited and engulfed him. He jumped from his truck, screaming..
His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs and a bowl yelling:
“bring me some more eggs!”
She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks.
The neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites onto the young man’s face.
When the ambulance arrived and the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this. Everyone pointed to the lady in charge. They congratulated her and said: “You have saved his face.” By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her. His face was like a baby’s skin.
A Healing Miracle for Burns
Keep in mind this treatment of burns is being included in teaching beginner fireman.

, spread the egg whites onto the affected area.
One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite of
the pain, she ran cold faucet water on her hand, separated 2 egg whites from
the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution. The whites then dried and formed a protective layer.
She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued during at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was hardly a trace of the burn.
10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin had regained its normal color. The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.
