ICE - In Case of Emergency

Postby Paul on Tue Oct 07, 2008 10:53 am

Who here has ICE saved on their phone? Or carry an ICE card?


ICE is In Case of Emergency and gives the name and phone number of a significant other who could be contacted should the need arise.

For more details see this site. It's a good idea particularly for bikers as you're not always out with friends.

There is now a little USB dog tag that you can buy that stores; ICE details, photograph. blood type, GP contact details, International language options in case you are abroad, and you can put text files on it.

I have three ICE numbers on my phone, however didn't see the point of the digital dog-tags as the information isn't available immediately in case of an accident. I opted for military style tags with Name, Blood Group, Next of kin & Phone number on it. :thumbup:

It doesn't actually say ICE. But the contact numbers home, mum and dad seem the obvious choices to me.

I believe they have small PCs in ambulances so those details can be got to asap.

If your phone breaks in the accident then can't get the details. Also some people don't get on/have contact with parents and my work people only know my name and number. They don't have any emergency contact details unless they get through to HR.


It is always good to have a back up plan.

No need to edit it. Its you're thoughts and original opinion, don't change something becuase i don't 100% agree with it. Stand you're ground!

Now change it back... (Only joking :lol:)

That's all good and well, but what about the 5-10 minutes before the ambulance can get to you? If a total stranger runs over to help you and finds a USB stick round your neck, it's not going to be much good. If the same stranger runs over to help you and can find your name, blood type, next of kin and their phone number just by looking at a necklace, that's a much better bet in my mind ;) :)

Fair enough, however I still don't agree with you :P

IMHO what good is a random first person on scene knowing your blood type and NOK? The main priority is to get an ambulance and/or Police on its way followed by administering first aid straight away if needed/you’re confident in what you’re doing. If the person is conscious and it’s all internal where you can't do anything then trying to keep them warm and talking.

I for sure don't carry spare blood around with me! and IMO ringing NOK is a job that can be carried out 10-15 mins later, the persons health is first priority.

I'm not changing it back again haha.

I see your point, just having ICE next to some numbers doesn't cause any harm. Touch wood it won't need to be used.

Might get some dogtags one day. Makes sense, didn't really think about it til reading this thread.

I think anything you wear that can help the emergency services save your life is a good thing. Even if it was a bright pink necklace with details on it. emergency services will work with whatever they have and get the info asap. ill probably get some dogtags with my details on it when i come into some money.
