“In Case of Emergency” (ICE)

If you have a cell phone, one thing you can do right now is to enter in your In Case of Emergency contacts. The medical assistance people known as “First Responders” (paramedics, firefighters, and police officers) have been trained to look in cell phone address books under ICE when they arrive on the scene of an emergency.

The do this to look for contacts who can provide important medical information when the person they are helping cannot do so themselves. If there are several people who should be contacted in case of an emergency, make multiple entries like “ICE1”, “ICE2”, etc.

If you don’t use a cell phone, there are still ways to prepare for an emergency. Click the forward button to learn.
