FOR MY READERS IN THE UK ... OR PASS IT ON TO SOMEONE YOU KNOW WHO LIVES THERE
The bombings last week in London prompted some creative soul to come up with a wonderful emergency tool. This could save a lot of heartache should tragedy occur.
East Anglian Ambulance Service has launched a national "In case of Emergency ( ICE ) " campaign with the support of Falklands' war hero Simon Weston and in association with Vodafone's annual life savers award.
The wasy it works is, 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, helping personnel would be able to locate your next of kin immediately, and contact them.
it's a great idea, isn't it? Maybe someone in the US could get something like this started, or you may know a way to enter "Emergency Contact" on your screen. At any rate, once the word gets around, the first thought of the person on the scene, besides calling an EMS, would be to check the victim's cell phone for this emergency information.
Please forward this to everyone in your address book who can benefit from it.
