all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its
memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these
numbers belong to our closest family or friends.

Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.
The concept of "ICE" is catching on quickly. It is a method of
contact during emergency situations. As cell (mobile) phones are
carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is
store the number of a contact person or persons who should be
contacted during emergency under the name "ICE" (In Case Of
program was conceived in the mid-2000s and promoted by British
paramedic Bob Brotchie in May 2005. It encourages people to enter
emergency contacts in their cell phone address book under the name
"ICE". The popularity of the program has spread across Europe, and
has started to grow into North America.
In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital
Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply
dialing the number you have stored as "ICE."
For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc.
A great idea that will make a difference!
Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our
Mobile phones today!
ICE will speak for you when you are not able to.
