      Hi All:
      I received the following in a newsletter the other day. It may be of
      interest here.

      >Useful Information:
      >
      >Subject: who's your emergency contact person?
      >
      >A recent article from the Toronto Star, "the ICE idea", is catching
      >on and it is a very simple, yet important method of contact for you
      >or a loved one in case of an emergency. As cell phones are carried
      >by the majority of the population, all you need to do is program the
      >number of a contact person or persons and store the name as "ICE".
      >The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when they went
      >to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with
      >patients, but they didn't know which numbers to call. He therefore
      >thought that it would
      >be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name to file
      >"next of kin" under.
      >
      >Following a disaster in London The East Anglican Ambulance Service
      >has launched a national "In case of Emergency (ICE)" campaign. The
      >idea is that you store the word "ICE " in your mobile phone address
      >book, and with it enter the number of the person you would want to
      >be contacted "In Case of Emergency ". In an emergency situation,
      >Emergency Services personnel and hospital staff would then be able
      >to quickly contact your next of kin, by simply entering the number
      >programmed under "ICE".
      >
      >Please forward this to friends in your address book. It won't take
      >too many "forwards" before everybody will know about this. It really
      >could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest. For more
      >than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc
