Add I.C.E. To Your Cell Phone Directory

 

We received this email advice from Marcos Sanchez, at Corridor Mortgage Group in Sandy Spring, Maryland. msanchez@corridormtg.com

 

"Over the weekend I was reading the paper and was amazed by how many people were injured in car accidents.

There was one story where the hospital couldn't identify the injured person and didn't know who to contact.

It reminded me of a tip that I have been meaning to pass along. So, here's the tip. Grab your cell phone and program in the most important person to notify in case you are hurt or in an accident. But instead of putting their name with that phone number, put in the following 3 letters: "I.C.E." This stands for "In Case of Emergency".

I have verified this information with several emergency room nurses and ambulance paramedics, even the captain of one of our local fire departments. All reported that once a patient is stabilized, they look in the cell phone for an "I.C.E." entry if that patient is unable to give them a contact person.

The medical personnel can then notify their loved one, let them know there has been an accident and what hospital to come to.

We all like to think it will never happen to us, but the truth is, it does happen. So get your cell phone out right now and program in your "I.C.E.". If your children or grandchildren have cell phones, do the same for them."

Good morning to all.  Please take time to put I.C.E. on the cell phones of the seniors in your family that might not know how to do it themselves.
