Emergency personnel often look at your cell phone contacts list for an ‘ICE’ contact, that is, an “In Case of Emergency“ entry.
With the proliferation of cell phones, it makes sense and it’s easy to do. Just set up a contact named ‘ICE’ and enter your emergency contact’s name, phone numbers, email address, etc.
In the notes field, you can add your vital medical information such as medications, allergies or medical conditions.
• Be sure your all family members add ICE to their cell phones including teenagers, college students and grandparents.
• Don’t forget to review and update your ICE info when you change doctors, start (or stop) medications or have a medical procedure.
