Power Tip #9 – ICE

cell_phonesJust heard this great idea …

Right now, put ICE in your phone’s contact list. This stands for “In Case of Emergency” and will be so helpful to emergency responders or emergency room attendees. They have been trained to look for this information.  Once you’ve put ICE in as a contact, type in (on the other fields) and allergies (especially to medicines) or current conditions you may have that will help in their treating you. Include one or two emergency phone numbers should they need to contact a relative or friend.

    This is a great idea! However, keep in mind that if you have any kind of security measures in place to protect your phone (passwords, patterns, etc), it will be impossible for healthcare officials (or anyone else) to get at your information.

      Good thought! On all my “electronic devises,” I’ve taken a black Sharpie and put my ICE contact (first name only and phone number) in some visible place. If you’re writing on a black surface, the silver Sharpies work great! Thanks for your thought!
