ICE - In Case of Emergency

Paramedics will turn to a victim's cell phone for clues to that person's identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone no. of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your cell phone NOW! If you have more than one emergency number put ICE1, ICE2, etc.

ICE - In Case of Emergency

Excellent idea but EMS does not go through your personal items when on a scene. Our first priority is the patient.

Adding to the idea of ICE- add the person's name we are calling.
Second at the beginning of names in a cell phone add their title- such as Mom with her name after or husband- with his name. There is nothing worse than having to calls someone, tell them bad news and not know their name.


Another thought- which has been a life saver- is placing your own name inside your cell phone. I've seen it in the menu of names- Me with name and address. Some phones have note areas where you can include allergies. A quick way of accomplishing this is inside the battery cover placing a return mailing label.
