A friend shared this suggestion with me the other day and I thought it was very worth while to turn the information into a blog bite because it is short, instructive, easy to put into practice and could save a life or at the very least prevent some anxious moments.
Unless you are like me and not a fan of cell phones, then you are almost 100% going to be carrying your phone with you wherever you go, complete with your favorite names and numbers stored. And of course in the company of billions of cell phone users worldwide now.
Paramedics who arrive on the scene of an accident report that although there are always cell phones with those who have been injured or worse, yet out of all the numbers they have to choose from, they have no idea who is the most important person to contact in case of an emergency.
This campaign was suggested and came about by the paramedics themselves
The more people who get to know about it, the more good it will do and the more it will be used.
All about ICE
Called the ICE campaign – it stands for IN CASE OF EMERGENCY – you are encouraged to store your next of kin (or preferred contact person) and their cell or other contact number under the word ICE.
If you have more than one important contact name and number, enter ICE1
– as many as you need.
You could save your own life or have the presence and comfort of a loved one as quickly as possible if you were injured. Please remember ICE, put it into your own phone, and the phones of those near and dear to you, and share the campaign with your friends and family.
Your good deed for the day...
