ICE ? In Case of Emergency

Have you put 'ICE' in your mobile telephone? Storing 'ICE' along with a name and telephone number will enable the emergency services to quickly contact someone for you in the event of an emergency. Eight out of ten people in the UK carry no next of kin details yet 80% carry a mobile phone, most of whom have it on them all the time. There is no simpler way of letting the emergency services know who to contact and seek essential medical details should you be involved in an accident than by using ICE.
