I.C.E. No the frozen kind (Cross Posted)

... No not the cool / frozen kind that we rely on to ease swelling etc

it stands for In Case of a Emergency

Following the disaster in London . . .
UK East Anglian Ambulance Service have launched a national "In case of Emergency ( ICE )" campaign with the support of
Falklands war hero Simon Weston.

The idea is that you store the word " I C E " in your mobile phone address book, and against it enter the number of the person
you would want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency".

In an emergency situation ambulance and hospital staff will then be able to quickly find out who your next of kin are and be
able to contact them.  It's so simple that everyone can do it.  For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc.


Thought it was a really good idea.  Not that I wish last thursday to happen again, but just on a general day to day thing.

Beth,

Think that is a really good idea. 

It would be really nice if these Radical People (terrorists) would wake up and smell the roses..but, their hatred is just too great to overcome compassion for innocent people.....

Sympathies to all who lost family members and to all those injured by this terror....
