ICE is the acronym for "In Case of Emergency". It refers to storing emergency contact information in your cell phone.
The concept of the ICE is rapidly gaining acceptance. The idea originated during the London bombings when a paramedic realized most of the victims did not carry emergency contact information, but they did carry cell phones. So he started a campaign to get people to store their information in their cell phones.
The process of adding "ICE" to your phone is easy and it costs nothing but the few moments it takes to program a new directory entry.
Just start a new directory entry with the heading of ICE followed by the name of your contact person, then fill in the rest of the entry information and save the number. Be sure to let the contact person know you have chosen them. You also can store a secondary or backup person to call as ICE2 or ICE3.
It is that simple and could help save your life. It is wise to keep an emergency contacts card with your I.D.
