Just saw a story on NBC's Nightly News about a great idea for cell phone users.
In the event that any of us, heaven forbid, are wheeled into an emergency room unconscious, ER personnel may not have any idea who to contact on your behalf.
Given how many of us carry cell phones, the idea is this:
Create an address book entry under the name of ICE (for In Case of Emergency) and progam in the number of your emergency contact person. This should be someone that can speak to your medical circumstances past & present, if possible.
It's something that we can do for ourselves that'll take only a few seconds, but could prove crucial during an unthinkable event.
