I.C.E Incase Of Emergency by wassade: 6:42am On Dec 07, 2012
Please read and pass on to
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
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.
