vital emergency information on you!


Put ICE in your mobile phone


In case of Emergency, would the police and fire departments know who to contact?
Simply type ICE plus a contact number (name if possible) into your mobile phone and help us to help you.


Follow these hints to get the best out of ICE:

  • Make sure the person whose name and number you are giving has agreed to be your ICE partner
  • Make sure your ICE partner has a list of people they should contact on your behalf - including your place of work
  • Make sure your ICE person's number is one that's easy to contact, for example a home number could be useless in an emergency if the person works full time
  • Make sure your ICE partner knows about any medical conditions that could affect your emergency treatment - for example allergies or current medication
