Bringing Neighbors Together

I. C. E.

iceWe all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory.   If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending 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.

"ICE" t is a method of contact during emergency situations. As 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'.  

Do you have your ICE identified?

  1. Do you have your ICE identified? No, we didn't, but we do now! Thanks for the info.

  2. Doesn't everyone carry an "in case of emergency" card in their wallet? I've always had one, with my daughter's name, address, home phone and cell number. I would assume emergency personnel would check the wallet of the person in an accident. A cell phone could go flying anywhere in case of impact, even out of the vehicle. And speaking of carrying in your wallet, carry your car registration in your wallet. DON'T carry your car registration in the glove box of your car. If someone breaks into your car, they can steal your garage door opener AND your registration--which has your home address on it, and break into your house through the garage. Carry your registration in your wallet--because you never drive without your wallet, since it also has your driver's license in it.
