At a recent Rotary Club meeting, a police officer discussed this.  She said
it was an excellent idea, but to always remember that in the case of an
automobile accident - it is very likely that your cell phone will be thrown
far from your body (sorry to be morbid, but can't avoid the truth) so it
would be wise to also put "ICE" information in glove compartment, in wallet,
etc - places that might also be searched by public safety personnel.
Repetition will be very helpful in an emergency situation.

Passing this along.  Seems a good idea for birders who are often far from
home.

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 this "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 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, 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 now!

   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.
