Most very young children can navigate a cell phone. Why not teach your young children how to look up your “ICE” contact if there is a problem?
ICE stands for “In Case of Emergency.” Medical personnel are increasingly aware of ICE contacts and will look in a person’s cell phone in hopes of finding emergency contacts that may be able to provide critical medical information when a patient arrives unconscious or unable to answer questions.
Here are the 3 simple steps:
- Create a new contact in your cell phone.
- Label the name “ICE” followed by who will be contacted (examples: your husband-Mike, you-Mom, etc.)
- Make sure the listed person can answer the critical questions (medical history and medications taking).
Do the same thing for everyone in your family who has a phone, and spread the word. Who knows, it may save your life one day.
