Mobile phone contact for emergency services.

  muddypaws 16:36 29 Jun 10

There is a 3 ( I think) letter contact name you can add to your address book into which you enter a next of kin tel. no..
If you are taken ill the emergency services are aware of this 'code word' and assuming you have your phone with you they tap in this to your contacts and access your next of kin number without the need to scan the address book.
I did have it, but never got round to entering it.
So, before I fall unconscious to the ground, does anybody know it?!!

.. In Case of Emergency

This was pioneered by an ambulance man/Paramedic a few years ago.

Basically what you do is put this in your mobile phone with the name I.C.E and the number of someone you want to be contacted in an emergency. i.e. wife, partner, next of kin etc.

Its only of use however if you don't lock or password your phone for obvious reasons.
