ICE Campaign -- \"In Case of Emergency\"\"\"

ICE Campaign - "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 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 has begun.



The concept of "ICE" is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell 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!



Please forward this. It won't take too many "forwards" before everybody will know about this. It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest. ICE will speak for you when you are not able to.

When you Buy a New Wallet, everyone I have ever seen has also included a simple Card that asks similar questions, right in the 1st Window. Unfortunately, most people never fill them out either!

I feel something in your Wallet that gives Emergency Info would be better and faster than having someone first figureing out how to use your Phone, then searching the Phone for a Contact Number. I just feel a Wallet is the most logical place someone would 1st look for that type of info. Or am I swimming against the current with that thought?

I think that it an excellent point when ever I need to use one of my friends phones it always takes me a little while to figure it out. And I think even if one of those cards is not included people should make one. I did both the wallet and the cell phone, I think the compliment each other nicely.

That was my thought exactly. I have a very simple Phone, all it does is make and get calls. But when I look at my Sisters Phone, (Blueberry) it would take me 10 mins. just to figure out how to turn it on! Besides, I forget to take mine 1/2 the time, and at times don't want to be reachable 24/7, that's why I mentioned the Wallet Card.

Maybe a laminated sticker on the Back of the Phone would be easier if you have one. Or, they should include that info on Drivers Licenses! That's the 1st thing any Hospital looks at, before searching for your Insurance Card! LOL

The wallet idea is okay and if you have a wallet that can be readily located, it probably has a drivers license and a number of other items of ID. BUT, this idea isn't about your wallet, it's about your cell phone and most adults with a cell phone can figure out how to access the address book. Put your information in there under ICE and it's going to be another place that people can locate your info in an emergency. A lot of people have their phone when they don't have their wallet. It has the potential to be helpful in an emergency. Pretty simple huh?

Anything helpful is a good idea to have. Maybe that's why the AF prints your Name & SS Number on your Underwear Band?

But if Carrying a Gun, I worry more about having my Wallet than I do my Cell because of the Permit. Plus I rarely carry much Cash, so I need my CC's as well.
