Emergency Contacts/I.C.E.

Most of us do not carry a list of emergency contacts. We should.
A list of emergency contacts can save emergency services personnel valuable time in locating next of kin for (or obtaining other necessary information about) a victim who is unable to respond to questions.

Even if the victim is carrying one or more forms of identification (such as a driver's license), those items don't necessarily provide information about where and how family and emergency contacts can be reached.

Most of us DO carry a cellular/mobile phone.
Fire Educators in Dakota County are supporting the I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) program, which encourages people to store the name and number of the person they would like contacted in an emergency into their cell phone under "ICE."

Help emergency service personnel help you.
Place "ICE" in your cell phone’s address book and, tell your family and friends to do the same. Have your choice of emergency contact be the first call made.
