‘ICE’ – In Case of Emergency Campaign

The ‘ICE’ idea was thought up by a UK paramedic (Bob Brotchie) who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but the emergency services didn’t know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognised name for this purpose.

In an emergency situation, Emergency Service and hospital personnel 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.

Hopefully the Wikipedia ICE page will keep up-to-date records of ICE as it develops as a concept.
