From Fire to ICE

Do you have ICE in your cell phone? ICE stands for “in case of emergency”—a phone number that medical professionals can use to get vital information when a patient arrives unconscious or unable to answer questions.

Save at least two numbers and be sure that both contacts are familiar with your medical history. They can be saved as “ICE – 1” and “ICE – 2” or with names such as “ICE – Mom.” In all cases, the “ICE” designation should come first.
