So, I thought this was important – when it matters.

The following is the text of an email I received this morning from a friend.
I was not aware of the information contained. Since this email seems to be
circulating extensively, it appears it could provide a valuable tool to us
in some emergency situations.
Following the disaster in London . The Ambulance Service have 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 against it enter the number of the person you would
want to be contacted “In Case of Emergency”. In an emergency
situation ambulance and hospital staff will then be able to quickly look at
your mobile phone and find out who your first contact should be and be able
to contact them. It’s so simple that everyone can do it. Please do.
Email this to everybody in your address book, it won’t take too many
“forwards” before everybody will know about this, and it will become an
international practice. For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3
etc. It really could help the emergency services in doing their job.
