ICE – In Case of Emergency

After work today my cell phone began to ring. My wife looked over onto the end table where it was located and noticed that the display on the phone read, “ICE – Parent”. Not understanding what that meant she asked me to explain why I labeled the contact that way. Several years’ back there was a national initiative called “ICE”. The purpose behind this initiative was to get people to list different emergency contacts in their cell phone as “ICE Contacts”.  In the event of an emergency a responder could look at the contacts in your cell phone and know who you wanted to contact “In Case of an Emergency”.

This serves as a good reminder to those who may have forgotten about this program. If this is the first time that you have ever heard about this initiative take a few minutes right now and add the word ICE in front of one or more contacts that you would like to be used in case of an emergency.
