THIS SOUNDS LIKE A SMART THING TO DO~~~~

Paramedics will turn to a victim's cell phone for clues to that person's identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone no. of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do. Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your cell phone NOW!

Please pass this one along.

I would do that, but Ice Cube is a personal friend of mine and I would hate for him to get erroneous emergency calls from some paramedic.

Did she also stitch your name in your spiderman undies?

Uh, why would they need this?

Ok...let's say you're lying on the ground after being attacked by an angry giraffe who saw you looking at his girlfriend's neck. The paramedics come and they locate your wallet and it says, Jack Meoff. Then they discover your cell phone. All they would need to do for Jack is to go to his Contacts in his Address Book and simply call random numbers. Or better yet, Jack might have a sister in his address book under the name, Jill Meoff. They would just call her, and of course she'll say, "Let him rot."

The point is- every cell phone has an Address Book in it. It would be easier and quicker for them to just call someone in your Address Book, then it would be to look and see if by some miracle- you have it listed under ICE.

Anyone mama tells to do anything still has their name stitched in all of their undies, not just the spidey ones.

Not QUITE false, but certainly not looked for by paramedics everywhere. Looks to be more of a European thing.

Personally if im in a state requiring paramedic attention, i want them to take me to hospital and give me medical treatment, not f*ck around calling my mum and telling her all about it. that can wait.

Why would they need this? No one listed in my cell phone contact list is medically qualified to save my life.

What good is this ICE thing going to do? Aren't these people smart enough to scroll through my cell phone and match the name on my operators license with the names in my cell phone?

What if my cell phone is destroyed in this accident? OH NO! No one will be able to identify who I am or find out who my relatives are!

Technology is over rated.

If they can't find out your name, they have to treat you as an indigent patient, and then you don't have to pay.

This will all be so much easier when they tatoo a barcode on our foreheads and/or drop an RFID tag in our necks. Then I won't have to worry myself with having valid contact info for emergencies in my wallet.

its becoming rather popular on this side of the pond...have actually found it very helpful on 3 occasions in the last year or so....

on most of the newer phones you need to place a . before ICE so it shows up at the top of your contact list,otherwise it will be buried down the list in the I s.....this may not be the case on all phones

Technology is over rated.

As is your concept of what is over rated.

As is your ability to use common things like:
razors
combs
and a Toothbrush.

And all of that from your personal picture on your avatar!

I use to have a friend who liked Star Wars a lot back in the late 70's. His mom was a JW, and he went off after he grew up.
