ICE was created to aid paramedics when they arrive at the scene of an accident. This acronym ICE (“in case of emergency”) is a simple way to program important names and phone numbers of those you would wish to notify should you become incapacitated or involved in a serious accident. Now, when a patient who is unconscious or unable to speak enters the emergency room, hospitals worldwide know to check their Smartphone for ICE contacts. Simply program your mobile devices memory with the acronym ICE, followed by the names and phone numbers of those whom you wish to be notified in an emergency. Follow the instructions
