Thread: Emergency number

    Emergency number

    This is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they come across your mobile phone.

    ICE - 'In Case of Emergency'

    We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these
    numbers belong to our closest family or friends.

    If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know
    who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence the 'ICE'
    (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.

    The concept of 'ICE' is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell(mobile)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!

    Please forward this. It won't take too many 'forwards' before everybody will know about this . It really could save your life, or
    put a loved one's mind at rest .

    ICE will speak for you when you are not able to.

    An extension of this idea is to designate who the ICE number is i.e. ICE wife or ICE brother.

    I also seem to remember after the 7/7 bombings this idea was suggested and then some idiot managed to tamper with the software and send all sorts of messages to ICE on everyones' phone - it was overcome by putting a space after each letter - I C E
