An Important Cell Phone Contact

Just about everyone has a cell phone and it's usually in your pocket or purse.  Do you have an In Case of Emergency contact set up in your phone?  It's a quick, easy way for first responders to know who to contact if you are hurt or injured an unable to communicate.

Some newer smart phones have an entry labeled in case of emergency. If yours does not, simply enter the acronym ICE (In Case of Emergency) into your phone. If you have an iPhone with iOS 8 or greater, you can read more about how to enable your "Medical ID," a built-in feature similar to ICE, by clicking here. If you do not have an iPhone with iOS 8 or greater, you can view instructions on adding an ICE contact into ANY mobile device by clicking here.

Taking a few moments to create an ICE entry can potentially help first responders in an emergency situation by saving valuable time in locating your emergency information.
