In Case of Emergency

Hi good people of blogville, I read this piece and wish to share with you. Hope you love it. Read on.
Apparently this is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when  they come across your cell phone. 
ICE  - '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 to 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) 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 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. A great idea that will make a difference!
Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today!

  1. Thanks for the tip dear. It makes a lot of sense. Spreading the ICE tip now.

  2. For those of you without mobile phones (e.g. Young Kids, elderly etc.) or have mobiles with PIN lock, we produce an alternative called ICEcard which is a card for your wallet/purse/pocket/schoolbag. You simply write on your emergency contact details, doctor's details and any special medical information.
