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.
