ICE

Here’s a worthwhile forwarded email I won’t mind seeing in an entry here. I would even go on further to encourage any interested reader to copy the following content and forward it to all your contacts to add to sensible stuff passed around.

Dear Y’all,

Please spend a few minutes to read thereby saving many happy years
of living.

ICE (In case of Emergency)

We all carry our mobile phones with hundreds of names/ numbers
stored in its memory but yet nobody, other than ourselves, know which of these
numbers belong to our near and dear ones?

In case we are involved in an accident or had a heart attack and the
people attending us get hold of our mobile phone but don’t know which
number to call to inform our family members. Yes, there are many numbers
stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency?

For this reason, we must have one or more telephone numbers stored
under the name ICE (In case of Emergency) in our mobile phones.

Recently, the concept of “ICE” is catching up quickly. It is simple,
an important method of contact during emergency situations.

As cell phones are carried by majority of the population, just store
the number of a contact person or person who should be contacted at
during emergency as ICE” (meaning In Case of Emergency).

The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when they 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.

Following a disaster in London, the East Anglican Ambulance Service
has launched a national “In case of Emergency (ICE)” campaign.

In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital
staff would then be able to quickly contact your next of kin, by simply
dialing the number stored as “ICE”.

Please forward this. It won’t take too many “forwards” before every
body will know about this.

It really could save your life, or put a loved one’s mind at rest.

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! Please forward to all your nearest and dearest…

Seems plausible to me.
