ICE Campaign - "In Case of Emergency"

We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its
memory, but no one, 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 carries by the majority of
the population, all you need to do is store the numbers of a contact
person or persons who should be contacted during an 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". It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at

For more than one contact, simply list as ICE1, ICE2, ICE3, etc. A
great idea that will make a difference!
