In Case of Emergency

In Case of Emergency contact

Sometimes ICE is a good thing on the road

If you were injured in an automobile accident and unable to communicate, could emergency responders contact your family promptly to notify them and get your medical info?

If you carry a cell phone, you can help them out. All it takes is three little letters: ICE.

They stand for In Case of Emergency. Put them at the beginning of your emergency contact's name in your phone.

Thanks to a campaign started by a British paramedic in 2005, first responders around the world are learning to look for ICE in accident victims' phone contact lists. ICE saves authorities time trying to figure out which of your dozens of contacts to call, and can prevent lengthy delays in notification after an incident.

Have more than one emergency contact? Use ICE1, ICE2, ICE3. Emergency workers can easily see the calling order.

Of course, it's still a good idea to carry a current medical emergency contact card in case your phone is damaged or without power.
