A good friend and fellow physician sent me this notice. This is a important public service announcement.
An individual citizen not the government initiated the program. If adoption of the program becomes a national standard, it will demonstrate people power and individual responsibility.
The key to Repairing the Healthcare System is individual responsibility. This program represents an opportunity for every individual to assume responsibility for themselves and alert everyone they know to be responsible for themselves.
A paramedic conceived ICE. At the scene of accidents he found cell phones on an unconscious victim but he could not find whom to notify.
He thought it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized symbol to find a victims contact person In Case of an Emergency in the victims cell phone directory.
The ICE cell phone number could be found quickly. Emergency service and hospital personal could simply dial the phone number stored under "ICE."
