ICE your phone

10.16.2014

Did you know that designating someone as "ICE" in your cell phone contacts will allow first responders to know who to contact in case of an emergency?

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics-here's how it works

1.Create a new cell phone contact

2.In the name line, enter ICE, followed by the first name of your emergency point person  (ie, ICE Mark)

3.Choose someone who knows your medical history and can answer questions about allergies and medications you are currently taking.

4. Let family members know that you have done this and encourage them to do so as well-especially your own children and teens!
