In Case Of Emergency
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 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! 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.

please pass it on.
