if you're in an accident, and you happen to lose consciousness, it's understood that Emergency services will try to use your 'phone to contact someone you know to advise them of the accident.
In the UK, a member of the emergency services is asking everyone to do the following (and pass it on):
List a couple of your nearest and dearest under the name of 'ICE. pls contact' (In Case of Emergency)
This will duplicate your telephone numbers, but that's not a problem. At least they'll know exactly who to call.
Everyone - get the ball rolling and spread the word!
I am grateful to Placid Pool for giving me this information.
Thanks for this, Fede. In this United States EMTs and Paramedics will check for ICE on your phone also.
