In Case of Emergency (ICE)

Last month we asked everyone to create an emergency communications plan. This tip builds on that plan by introducing ICE, which stands for In Case of Emergency.

Summer is here and many will be traveling. With travel opportunities come the reality that you and your family may be separated. If you or a family member is involved in an accident, it may be important to be contacted rapidly. This is especially true if healthcare workers need a medical history to aid in treatment. By including numbers on your cell phone designating ICE Dr., ICE Mom or ICE Dad, family or your designated emergency contact can be located more readily.
