Every day we venture out of our safety net into the world of the unknown. You might be a Realtor, Home Inspector, Stager, Mortgage Broker, Title Agent, Attorney or Property Manager. Your spouse sets off for his or her job, and the kids are safely tucked on the bus for their day at school.
You perform your morning ritual which might include breakfast, checking your email or returning some phone calls. Getting ready to run out the door - remember to grab your keys, files, lap top, Ipad, and by all means don't forget your cell phone.
Before you dash out of the house to tackle a new day ----Did you put your cell phone on ice?
What would happen it the unthinkable occurred on your way to the office or during your work day? A car accident. A heat attack. Being hit by a car when crossing the street. What if you were rendered unconscious and could not communicate with rescue workers or medical personnel?
How would anyone locate your loved ones? Who would make medical decisions for you if you could not do it yourself? What if something happened to your spouse and no one knew to notify you?
Medical and law enforcement personnel are using the latest technology to notify your emergency contacts should you be unable to do so. They are doing it with ICE. IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
It's rare today for anyone to be without a cell phone. Not only can you communicate with the device, it can communicate for you. If you are in a serious accident emergency responders can quickly locate and call your Emergency contacts.
One article I found on the internet advises setting up a "Contact" on your phone simply named ICE. You can list your emergency contact number there. ICE your phone
Personally I've added ICE to the last name of my family members as well. I talk to them daily so as soon as anyone would open my phone and look at recent calls they would see ICE by more than one name. If someone scrolls my contact list several names would show with ICE notations.
If one contact is unreachable there would be multiple people to call. I also add Husband, son, sister to my relatives names so an emergency caller would know who they are speaking to.
It is strongly recommended for your safety that you update your phone. If you have a serious medical condition and need assistance this information could be critical to first responders.
Encourage your spouse, your parents and other relatives to update their phones as well.
