Lifehack "ICE" - In Case of Emergency

Sometimes the unthinkable happens here in Reading… A terrible accident and those involved aren't able to provide our local Reading rescuers with emergency contact information. There are people who must be contacted to arrange help, give consent to treatment, inform paramedics of medical conditions, allergies or medications.

Too often, Reading police and rescue workers must sift through pockets, glove compartments, wallets, purses and cell phone directories for clues – often wasting precious time.

A brilliantly simple solution is now spreading around the globe: ICE. ICE – standing for 'In Case of Emergency', is a way of identifying emergency contacts in your cell phone directory.

Simply put 'ICE' before a contact name, like 'ICE – Dad', 'ICE – Nancy', or 'ICE – Doctor Roberts'. Rescuers will be able to quickly identify your emergency contacts, saving valuable time.

It's easy and just takes a few minutes to designate some ICE contacts in your cell phone. Remember to keep the listings current.

From your friends at Genesis Lee Myles in Reading PA, we'd like you to be as safe as possible while out on the road. Give us a call any time for great automotive advice.
