Everyone should have ICE; that is,
In Case of Emergency numbers listed on their cell speed dial.
ICE helps first responders, such as Police, Fire and Paramedics to identify next of kin for important medical information in case you aren't able to provide that information yourself.
This program was invented by a British Paramedic in 2005 because fewer than 25% of people carry any details of who to contact in the event of a serious accident, injury or sudden illness.
It's easy to do. Simply enter key contact names and numbers in your cell phone address book under ICE. Multiple emergency contacts should be listed as ICE 2,
ICE 3, etc.
You can also carry a sticker and/or card in your wallet that acts as a visual alert for first responders. Anyone can receive these free ICE stickers and cards by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:
PO Box 82
Dewitt, NY 13214
or by visiting their website http://www.ice4safety.com/
