   WHY NOT ICE YOUR MOBILE PHONE!    6 November, 2012

This apparently is a standard procedure that paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they find your mobile phone.

                                                  ICE = 'IN CASE OF EMERGENCY'


All you have to do is to put the contact number if your next of kin into your phone. You can have ICE1, 2, etc.

The idea is that , if you were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending you would find your mobile phone but would not know which number to ring. We all store many numbers but who is the contact person closest to you? Hence this 'ICE' (in case of emergency) campaign.
