If you’re hurt in a car crash, you may not be conscious, or you may not be coherent. Emergency personnel and first responders need to know how to contact your family if something has happened to you. The easiest way for them to do this is with your own cell phone.
You can make it easy for police and EMTs to contact your family by adding ICE contacts to your cell phone. ICE stands for “In Case of Emergency” – they’re trained to look for these alphabetically in your address book.
Create a new contact that looks like this:
ICE Mom 215-555-1212
Begin the entry with “ICE” and follow it with some descriptive context for who the person is to you – mom, dad, uncle, husband, wife, etc. Add more than one ICE contact if needed.
