I got this in an email:

Got a mobile phone or two in the houshold ? then read on.....

East Anglian Ambulance Service have; launched a national "In case of Emergency (ICE)" campaign with the support of Falklands war hero Simon Weston and in association with Vodafone's annual life savers award.

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 find out who your next of kin are and be able to contact them.

It's so simple - everyone can do it.

Please do.

Please will you also forward this to everybody in your address book, it won't take too many forwards' before everybody will know about this.

It really could save your life.

Stay safe.

That's why I didn't find it in the archives, I searched for ICE rather than I.C.E.

I got a few emails about it as well. Its also on the BBC site click here

I guess if you have your mobile on your belt or person, it would help.

good idea - I've only had one email, don't mind getting repeated mails if it's for a good cause.
