Your Cell Phone and ICE - In Case of Emergency

At times of crisis, your cell phone can be an indispensable lifeline. Simply enter the acronym ICE before the name and number in your cell phone address book of someone that could be contacted on your behalf during an emergency. For example, you can create entries such as ICE - Mom, or ICE - John. This will enable emergency personnel to know whom to contact should you be in shock or otherwise unable to give them necessary information yourself.

If you have a cold or the flu, or are just not sure what to do - contact your Primary Care Physician or visit the Emergency Room. Find a primary care physician.
