In Case of an Emergency (ICE)

Keeping it Simple and Just do it!

ICE was first put into general use in Britain a few years ago and has since gone Global!  If  you have yet to do so - PLEASE do it!

It lets first-responders know who to contact if you are injured where every second save could be critical.

Couple ways of making sure medical providers are aware of these. Go online to Medids and get a Free Medical Emergency Information Alert Card, fill out the information and keep in with your driver’s license, provide copy to your ICE list, and keep it with you.  While you are online, visit ICESTICKER.COM.

Make sure that the folks you have selected to your ICE list know they are, and that the following information is available:
  • Medicines –List all current medications you are taking, including herbal and organic supplements because they can and do interact with some medications.
  • Allergies – List all known allergies, especially to medications, but also to foods.
  • Doctors – Include the names and phone numbers of doctors or other medical providers responsible for your regular care.
There are several apps available online for downloading on just about all digital devices, take a couple minutes, do your search, download, install and complete the information – it could SAVE your life.

Always carry that information with you.
