Put ICE on your Cell Phone - AN ADVICE FOR EMERGENCY

Apparently this  is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when  they come across your cell phone. 

ICE  - 'In Case of Emergency'
We all carry our mobile phones with names &  numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of  these numbers belong to our closest family or  friends. 

If we were to  be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would  have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds  of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?  Hence this 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) Campaign the concept of 'ICE' is  catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As  cell(mobile) phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you  need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be  contacted during emergency under the name 'ICE' ( In Case Of  Emergency). 

The idea was  thought up by a paramedic who found that when he 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. In an emergency  situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to  quickly contact the right person by simply dialling the number you have stored  as 'ICE.' 
For more than  one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will  make a difference!
Let's spread the concept of ICE by  storing an  ICE number in our Mobile  phones today!

Please  forward this. It won't take too many 'forwards' before everybody will know  about this. 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.
