PUT AN EMERGENCY CONTACT NUMBER INTO YOUR CELL PHONE - call it ICE (In Case of Emergency)
Bob Brotchie of the East Anglian Ambulance Service realised that increasingly he and his colleagues were using accident victims' mobile phones to try and contact people who knew them, but it was very random. "How much better", he thought, "if we could persuade people to put an "In Case of Emergency" number into their CONTACTS list."
Eight out of ten folk arenít carrying information that would help if they were involved in an accident. Don't be one of them !
Select "Contacts" and then "Add New Contact". Enter the letters ICE and then the telephone number of the person who has agreed to be your contact person.
For under-18s, that person should be your mother, father or guardian - they may have to make treatment decisions on your behalf if you are unconscious and they'll also be the ones most likely to know about any medical conditions you have, including any allergies or details of medicines you may be taking :)
TELL THEM you are adding their number into your mobile phone as your ICE contact - make sure they agree to be it for you :)
(You could even have more than one ICE person in your Contacts list ... call them ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 ... or ICE Mum, ICE Dad, ICE Gran ... you get the idea :)
Programming ICE numbers into your mobile makes it easier for everyone if youíre involved in an accident, and safer for you. It only takes a few seconds ... do it now !
