If you think we’re talking about something that keeps you cell phone cold, read this Tech Tip to find out about recommended use of In Case of Emergency number(s) on your cell phone.
Frustrated with trying to figure out who to call using injured patients’ cell phone contacts, a paramedic in London came up with a great idea a few years back. He began a campaign to encourage cell phone users to create an ICE entry in their cell phone contact list that gives the phone number for the person to contact in case of emergency.
Since then the use of ICE has spread, and is now recognized by emergency responders all over the world. Setting it up is simple: create an entry in your cell phone's contact list named "ICE," and use it to hold the phone numbers of the person you want notified in case of emergency.
