The weather is bloody blasted hot but I’m not talking about tossing your phone into a bucket of frozen water cubes. If you should collapse or get in an accident and a good samaritan grabbed your cell phone, whom would they call? You may have dozens of names stored in the phone’s memory but which people would know what you wanted during a medical emergency?

Hence, 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) Your Phone!

The concept of 'ICE' is a method of contact during emergency situations. All you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons under the name 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency). During an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel, Hospital Staff, and Good Samaritans 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. Make certain that you let the iced people know that they are listed as your ICE contact and what you want during a medical emergency. It’s always good to have a written medical directive on file with your will.

Let's spread the concept of ICE today! Please forward this blog. It won't take too many 'forwards' before everybody will know about this idea, which I learned from an emergency responder. 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.
