Put it on ICE

Have you heard about the new sensation sweeping the nation?

ICE is a British program that can help emergency workers save your life and notify your loved ones in the event that you are unconscious and/or unable to communicate with them. ICE stands for "In Case of Emergency", and can signal emergency workers that a particular person or persons should be notified.

EMTs here in the US report that it can make a huge difference, especially for people with medical conditions or allergies....

Here's how it works: Store the number or numbers of people who can give emergency workers information about your medical history under the name "ICE". Depending on how your phone works, you can store multiple numbers under the name or store multiple numbers as ICE1, ICE2, etc.

Why haven't you done it already????
