In Case of Emergency....

Got this from a friend's blog and thought it was well worth passing on. Thanks to Stacer and whoever she got it from.

In view of yesterday's events in London, East Anglian Ambulance Service have launched a national "In Case of Emergency (ICE)" campaign with the support of Falklands war hero Simon Weston and in association with Vodafone's annual life savers award.

The idea is that you store the word "I C E" in your mobile phone address book, and against it enter the number of the person you would want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency".

In an emergency situation, ambulance and hospital staff will then be able to quickly find out who your next of kin are and be able to contact them. It's so simple that everyone can do it.

Please will you also forward this to everybody in your address book, it won't take too many 'forwards' before everybody will know about this. It really could save your life.

For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc.

Stacer's comment was that "Emergency Contact" might work better.

Now, if I could just figure out how to program this stupid phone....

that's a good idea... i think that cell phone companies should have an emergency contact button on the dial pad. i have well over 100 numbers in my phone and the emergency people would have to scroll a long way to get to emergency numbers...

Depending on how numbers are stored (ASCII sequence by name??), one could finagle things so that the ICE # is first.

Just a thought.
