ICE Campaign - 'In Case of Emergency'
We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in the
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. 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. 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
contact the right person quickly 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.
