ICE is a good idea!

"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.
See you on the trail again soon,

I accidently ran into this awhile back-
I was doing CPR on a guy way up in the woods on a mountaintop, waiting on the first response crew/ambulance to show up (basicly find us ). When the victim was finally loaded up on the stokes to be carried out, one of the ambulance crew collected all the items laying on the ground that was on/near the victim...includeing my cell phone. At the time, I never noticed it wasent in my pocket- when i discovered it missing, I knew it was either with the victims personal belongings, or still with the ambulance crew...this was about 2 hours after the incident...before I could call anyone, there was a knock at the door.

one of the first responders was standing there, holding my phone. I asked him why he didnt call the first entry-"HOME", or any of the, mother and father, work, ect...

he said it was much easier to just call the cell provider and get my physical address, since he wasent sure if I was the deceased or not and the family hadent been notified. Since physical address`s are a basic part of the contrat to owning a paid phone (not a one time use phone, pay as you go)- it was a simple matter for him....BUT, he said with the prevalence of the cheap phones, its better to put the first number-after 911- as "emergency contact"

hence "ICE".
