ICE Can Improve Your Survival Chances

            More of us are carrying cell phones everywhere we go, but not everyone carries emergency contact information useful for paramedics in an emergency.  At you can discover how to get an ICE sticker to put on your cell phone.  ICE stands for “In case of emergency.”  A paramedic or doctor who sees the ICE sticker will know you’ve prepared ahead of time and programmed into your cell phone the number of someone to contact in case of emergency.


            None of us wants to think about such things, but what if your teenager were in an accident and unable to respond to questions at the scene or in the hospital?  Having an ICE sticker and the preparations that go with it could make a big difference in saving your child’s life.  The same would be true if you have an elderly parent with Alzheimer’s who wanders off and gets lost.


            The only thing I get by mentioning this to you is the satisfaction of knowing it could be helpful for you, especially if having an ICE sticker helps you or a loved one survive.  Remember, Survival—It’s about living!
