    I just talked to a firefighter/EMT. He said they do look for entries of home, wife, work, ICE, etc.

    ha, we did this one time when i used to work at CIP...the bastards just hung up on us though. i was like, fine, if you don't want your phone back (like, i'd already called before and they'd hung up lol)...but they did come to get it, but if i recall correctly it wasn't cuz we called, just cuz they realized it was missing and thought it mighta been there lol.

    bastages.

    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 and 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 today!

    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.
    Yeah I have had this in my phone now for about 4 years when I heard about it. I loved the idea when I heard it.

    I've been doing it for a couple years. I work with a LPVRS, he said they do look for ICE and such in the event of a non-responsive person so they can pass info along.

    Good idea. I remember when my little brother went away to college and my mom programmed herself as "ICE mom" into his phone. I had never heard of it before then and thought she was just trying to give an odd nickname to herself...

    CC Emergency Services and Sherrifs Office do check...

    My phone actually has an ICE entry at the top of the list AND can be accessed when the phone is locked! Came this way from Verizon...

    Cool part is you can have multiple contacts (up to 3) in ICE - AND - you can place notes in there... mine says "No Allergies" - my wife has her allergies listed and medications she regulary takes.
