ICE Campaign - "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 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 
recognised 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.
