Subject: In Case of Emergency (ICE)

The London incident has promoted concerns and I share with you what
one of my European colleagues just sent. As long as everyone knows what
ICE stands for, it is not a bad idea.
A useful thing to add to your mobile address book!
It was thought up by an ambulance man/paramedic who found that when
they went to the scenes of accidents there were always mobile phones
but they didn't know which numbers to call and he thought that it would be
a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name to file "next of
kin" under.

Following the disaster in London . . .East Anglian Ambulance Service
have launched a national "In case of Emergency (ICE)" campaign with
the support of Falklands war hero Simon Weston.

The idea is that you store the word " I C E " in your mobile phone
Address book, and against it enter the number of the person you would
want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency".

In an emergency situation ambulance and hospital staff will then be
able to quickly find out who your next of kin are and be able to
contact them.
It's so simple that everyone can do it. Please do.

Please will you also email this to everybody in your address book, 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.

For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc.

Whoever stole the Sun, put it back and we'll drop all the charges!

The ICE listing is good in the US as well...paramedics are trained to look for it...

This is a good and simple idea, and we were asked to do it at our work team meeting a few weeks back.

Not to make light of the serious benefits of the ICE system, but I will tell the story of waht happened at the meeting.
The senior manager told us all about ICE, and recomended we put our wife's number in, as he'd done.
My mate Mick, who's currently living in someones garage because his wife found out about his two girlfriends, said "ICE - phone my wife! I'm already frozen out!"
