Have your cell phone handy?
Take a moment right now to put "ICE" by the names of the people you'd want called in case of emergency.
That's what "ICE" stands for -- "in case of emergency." ICE is an acronym that stands for "in case of emergency," and it is a great idea that’s spreading around the world.
The point is to let rescue workers, police, or doctors check your cell phone and reach the people you would want contacted if you're in an accident or other emergency.
Most people don't have ICE on their cell phones, but they'll plug those letters into their cell phones once they learn why it's important.
The idea is to insert the word
ICE before the people you'd like called in case of an
emergency. That way, paramedics and other emergency workers
will know whom to call.
For example, let's say you want your husband, Steve Smith, and your mother, Jane Simon, to be called if there is an emergency. Your cell phone entries might be: ICE-Steve Smith and ICE-Mom Jane Simon.
Most paramedics now know what ICE means and they look for it. This saves them time, so your loved ones are contacted more quickly.
Tip: Always place ICE before more than one name in your cell phone in case the first person doesn't answer right away. You can even use ICE1, ICE2, ICE3... to designate the order you'd like the paramedic to call people.
Added benefit: If you lose your cell phone and someone honest finds it, they'll have more options of whom to call to get the phone back to you.
Action: Enter ICE before several names in your cell phone right now.
