ICE-Not a bad idea

I C E In Case of Emergency.

The following is a very good idea, and was actually used in the disaster in London recently, I gather it's being going for a while. It can be used in any kind of emergency, and enables loved ones not to worry unnecessarily. East Anglian Ambulance Service have launched a national "In case of Emergency ( ICE )" campaign. The idea is that you store the word " I C E " in your mobile phone address book, and against it enter the number of the person you would want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency". In an emergency situation ambulance and hospital staff will then be able toquickly find out who your next of kin are and be able to contact them. It's so simple that everyone can do it.
