Safety Tip: ICE

From a friend of mine:

ICE Your Phone (In Case of Emergency)

Did you know that if you were involved in an emergency and unable to speak for yourself (e.g., unconscious), your cell phone could help emergency responders and healthcare workers reach a family member or close friend? All you have to do is put the name of your emergency contact in your cell phone's phone book with the word "ICE" as the prefix. "ICE" stands for "In Case of Emergency." For example, if your emergency contact is Sheila, you should put "ICE -- Sheila" in your phone book. That way, emergency workers treating you can quickly contact Sheila to get the information about you that they need. You can also have more than one emergency contact -- you just list them as ICE1, ICE2. This ICE nomenclature is recognized by emergency providers worldwide.
