I.C.E” in Emergency Campaign

MESSAGE FROM THE AMBULANCESERVICES

“ I.C.E” in EmergencyCampaign


We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its' memory, but if we were involved in an accident or were taken ill, how would the people attending us know who to call? 


We have scores of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? 

This is where 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) Campaign comes in.       

The concept of 'ICE' is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations.  
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 scene of an accident there was normally always a mobile phone with the patients, but know way of knowing which number to call.  
He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognised 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 dialling the number you have stored as 'ICE'.

Many of us lock our phones which will stop anyone from accessing this information but technology, such as Siri, will still let a call go through voice activation. Make sure you have your emergency contact named as ICE.

There is also the emergency details section that can be updated through settings in your phone. This information can be obtained even when a phone is locked.

Do it today!
