ICE your cellphone - in case of emergency

I. C. E. stands for In Case of Emergency. If you
own a cellphone, you should enter ICE numbers into its memory.
If you are ever incapacitated or if you have an accident, where you
cannot communicate, your cellphone can save your life.

Here's how it works:
Simply enter the word ICE 1 or ICE 2, ICE 3, etc. and list
the names and phone numbers of those you would like to be notified, as
separate listings.
The police are aware of ICE and have used it to find relatives of accident victims.
Take a moment and do it now. It may save your life!
