Dear All,

We all carry our mobile phones with hundreds of names/

numbers stored in its memory but yet nobody, other

than ourselves, know which of these numbers belong to

our near and dear ones?

In case we are involved in an accident and the people

attending us get hold of our mobile phone but don't

know which number to call to inform our family

members. Yes, there are many numbers stored but which

one is the contact person in case of an emergency?

For this reason, we must have one or more telephone

numbers stored under the name ICE (In case of

Emergency) in our mobile phones.

Recently, the concept of "ICE" is catching up quickly.

It is simple, an important method of contact during

emergency situations.

As cell phones are carried by majority of the

population, just store the number of a contact person

or person who should be contacted at during emergency

as ICE" (meaning In Case of Emergency).

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that

when they 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


Following a disaster in London, the East Anglican

Ambulance Service has launched a national "In case of

Emergency (ICE)" campaign.

In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel

and hospital staff would then be able to quickly

contact your next of kin, by simply dialing the number

stored as "ICE".

Please forward this. It won't take too many "forwards"

before every body will know about this.

It really could save your life, or put a loved one's

mind at rest.

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! Please forward to

your all nearest and dearest.
