ICE your cell phone
Many have heard about ICE, which stands for “In Case of Emergency” in your cellphone's address book.   

How To Add ICE To Your Cell Phone

Type the acronym ICE followed by a contact name (for example, ICE – mom or ICE – David) into the address book of your cellular phone.   

Tell your ICE contact that you have nominated them and make sure they know your illnesses, medications and any allergies you might have. 

For more than one contact name program ICE1, ICE2, etc. 

While not foolproof, it can be an additional tool for paramedics to use.  Responders agree that more information is preferable to less in a medical emergency!
