ICE ~ In Case of Emergency

We all carry our mobile phones with hundreds of names / numbers stored in its memory but yet nobody, other than ourselves, knows of these numbers belong to pur near and dear ones?

In case we are involved in an accident or had a heart attcak and the people attending us get hold of our mobile phone but don't know which number to call to inform our family members. Yes, these are many numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?

For this reason, we must have one or more telephone numbers stored under the name ICE (In Case of Emergency) in our mobile phones.

Recently, the concept of "ICE" is catching up quickly. It is simple, an important method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by majority of the population, just strored the number of a contact person or person who should be contacted at dtring emergency as 'ICE'(meaning In Case of Emergency).

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that 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.

Following a disaster in London, the East Anglican Ambulace Service has launched a national In Case of Emergency (ICE) campaign. In an emergency situation, Emergency ervice personnel and hospital staff would then be able to quickly contact your next of kin, by simply dialling the number stored as 'ICE'.

It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind of rest. For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our mobile phones today! Please forward to your all nearest and dearest.

 A great idea that will make a difference!,
