ICE your phone

I really like this idea and plan to do this and have hubby do it as well:

Following the disaster in London, the East Anglian Ambulance Service have launched a national “In case of Emergency (ICE)” campaign with the support of Falklands war hero Simon Weston.

The idea is that you store the word “I C E” in your mobile phone address book, and against it enter the number of the person you would want to be contacted “In Case of Emergency”. In an emergency situation ambulance and hospital staff will then be able to quickly find out who your next of kin are and be able to contact them. It’s so simple that everyone can do it.

Please do. It really could save your life, or put a loved one’s mind at rest. For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3, etc

Obviously, the “national” campaign is for England BUT I still think it is useful for the US as well – the more widely spread this idea becomes, the more useful in an emergency.
