Getting Comfortable With The Basics

ICE = In Case of Emergency

Use your mobile phone as an identity bracelet.  

ICE stands for “in case of emergency,” and it’s what emergency responders have been taught to look for if someone needs medical attention. What if that person is you? Where is your ICE info? One of the most accessible and most convenient places to keep emergency information is on your smartphone so that someone can see it without having to unlock your phone. Make sure you and everyone in your family have ICE info on their phone.
