ICE

How many of you are aware of ICE? No, I don't mean the kind you put in drinks or skate on. I mean the ICE number that is listed in your cell phone. For those of you who don't know what it stands for; In Case Of Emergency. Anytime I have gotten a new phone, it is the very first number I enter. Should something happen when I am away from home and I am unconscious, the first thing a First Responder will look for on your phone is the ICE. You should always list it as follow ICE Mary Daughter and then the number Area Code - 555-1234.

Thank you for the reminder. I know about it, but I couldn't remember the acronym. I'll put it on my phone right away.

I just realized there is a little problem. My phone requires a code to use it. I put the code so I won't bum dial.

Make the code simple. Such as 1 2 3

i will have to ask my son if there is a code they use first when they find the phone locked. Will get back to you on that. I just sent him an email.

I have my medic alert necklace I wear whenever I am out of the house. It has web access to all of my health information, including my contact numbers. Also have a key fob that is USB storage with all the info, plug it into any computer and it brings up my health info.

How can I get one of those key fobs? Between heart, diabetes, allergies to a lot of meds, it sounds like just what I need. I already have a blank Flash, should I use that? It has a ring for my key ring. Thank you so much for the idea. I have been toying for years about wearing a braclet or neclace, but with my skin condition it would only aggravate it. And one for you Miss Nightingale!
