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 dialing 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.
