In Case of Emergency (ICE)
The “ICE” (In Case of Emergency) initiative, supported by the Sussex Ambulance Service, involves the creating of an entry in your mobile phone directory giving the number of a contact person or persons who should be notified In Case of Emergency. This is entered in the directory under the title ICE so that Emergency Service personnel and hospital staff would quickly be able to contact the right person just by calling that number.
For more than one contact name, simply enter “ICE1”, “ICE2”, “ICE3”, etc. The concept of ICE is catching on quickly and was first thought up by a paramedic who found that, when he went to the scene of an accident, there was generally a mobile phone with the patient but no indication of who to call to notify. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognised name for this purpose.
