A campaign encouraging people to enter an emergency contact number in their mobile phone memory under the heading "ICE" (for "In Case of Emergency"), has spread throughout the world. Originally established as a nation-wide campaign in the UK, ICE allows paramedics or police to be able to contact a designated relative/next-of-kin in an emergency situation.
The idea was the brainchild of East Anglian Ambulance Service paramedic Bob Brotchie.
"I was reflecting on some of the calls I have attended at the roadside where I had to look through the mobile phone contacts, struggling for information on a shocked or injured person. Almost everyone carries a mobile phone now, and with ICE we would know immediately who to contact and what number to ring. The person may even know of their medical history."
By adopting the ICE advice, your mobile will help rescue services quickly contact a friend or relative — which could be vital in a life or death situation. It only takes a few seconds to do, and it could easily help save your life.
Why not put ICE in your phone now?
Simply select a new contact in your phone book, enter the word ´ICE´ and the number of the person you wish to be contacted. For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc.
It is so simple that everyone can do it.
