Topic Ever heard of "ICE"? Great idea. Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

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 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 th e 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 ourMobile
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 .

Hi,

That is a great Idea. some time back I fell in the city and I was bleeding such that the people who rushed to help me did not know whom to contact although I had my mobile phone.

Thanks for your idea.

Yours
