I C E
ICE, no, it’s nothing to do with the expected cold weather, it stands for In Case of Emergency. At the present time about 85 to 90 per cent of us own mobile phones, if we are out alone and are taken ill or even go unconscious, what can others do to contact our nearest and dearest. We do not always have documents on our person which contain the relevant information. One easy solution is to add into your mobile phone directory under Name, key in ICE then the name and number of the person you want to be contacted first.
My phone is programmed with ICE 1, my home number, the most likely place to contact my wife Carole, ICE 2 Carole’s mobile number. The Emergency Services are all aware of this procedure, it could be a lifesaver, especially if information regarding our medication is needed before treatment can be given.
