I’m sure not many of us know about this ICE Campaign that’s been circulating around blogosphere. This campaign has actually started a few years back and might have saved lives already. As it’s been passed by Sam, the concept is just awakening I find no reason not to share it.
The concept of “ICE” (In Case of Emergency) 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!!!
It’s never too late to forward this and save lives ICE…
