Our freedom and independence is what we appreciate most about life. Freedoms like; hiking, dating, thrill seeking, traveling and other adventures that can sometimes lead to situations where you may need some help. Letting someone know what you’re doing before you do it is the best way to cover yourself In Case of Emergency (ICE). However, constantly telling your friend that you might need their help can be annoying. ICE Contact asks for help when you can’t and won’t bother them un-necessarily.
In Case of Emergency (ICE) is a programme that enables first responders, such as paramedics, firefighters,and police officers, as well as hospital personnel, to contact the next of kin of the owner of a working mobile phone to obtain important medical or support information. The programme was conceived in 2004 by Bob Brotchie, a British paramedic, and ICE was subsequently promoted by Brotchie from May 2005. It encourages people to enter emergency contacts in their mobile phone address book under the name “ICE”, or multiple contacts as “ICE1”, “ICE2”, etc.
