Thread: ICE: In Case of Emergency -contact info

    ICE: In Case of Emergency -contact info

    Florida DMV has a website setup that you can enter in two sets of contact information. In case you are in an accident they will contact them.

    I recommend everyone doing this. Last year I was in a serious car accident and was traumatized right afterwards. My phone was smashed so I had no phone numbers. Some guy offered me his cell phone. I had to sit for minute and think about who to call. It took me 3 times to get my mom's cell phone number right and I know that by heart.

    So check it out and it only take a couple of minutes.

    good find, Buck.

    I've got a homemade ICE (in case of emergency) card that I carry in my left back jeans pocket, inside left jacket pocket and on the bike. I still need to get it laminated but I reprint as needed.
    It reads as follows: (all is good info to also verify mental state!)

    Name:
    Address:
    Cell #:
    Allergies: morphine Blood Type: O+
    Normal B/P: 120/70 Normal Temp: 97.3 Normal Pulse: 85
    Current Meds: n/a
    I am an organ donor; my family does know my wishes.
    My living will is on file with my family, St. Joseph's & UCH.
    =====================
    Contact Info:
    #1. Name (relationship)
    Address / Home & Cell #s
    #2. Name (relationship)
    Address / Home & Cell #s
    #3. Name (relationship)
    Addresss / Home & Cell #s

    Please call xxxx to tow my motorcycle.

    This is the most important info you can ever have on you, should something awful happen to you (especially the living will and having your family know your true wishes)...

    Unfortunately, organ donor cards are useless, though...

    unfortunately, as Buck said, you don't know how valuable it is unless you've been there, done that.

    FYI: checking the "Organ Donor" box on your license IS NOT ENOUGH!!!
    Your next of kin MUST still sign a consent form for the release! That is why it is so important to discuss your wishes with your family.

    Wills can be useless, too...

    If your will says no tubes for me, and your next of kin says tubes for you, then guess what?...Tubes for you...

    Just like I posted above, your next of kin must know your TRUE wishes in the event that the unthinkable happens...And more importantly, be willing to honor those wishes, even if it means, well, the worst

    As far as I know, your next of kin must sign the release regardless of what your will states. Hopefully your next of kin will remember and honor your wishes when the time comes. Good luck in convincing him that this is truly what YOU want and how you want to be remembered. IMO, it truly is one of the last best things anyone can do to help others.

    It's also a good idea to have and "ICE" entry in your cell phone.

    Pretty sure that most EMT's and Police already know about the "I.C.E" program.

    Possible ICE on Florida roads
    Sunday, July 24, 2005

    The recent bombings in London gave a British paramedic an idea.

    The idea was to put ICE -- In Case of Emergency -- numbers in cell phones.

    If the cell phone owner had an accident or medical condition that prevented him or her from telling medical personnel the names of family members to call, the responder could simply look under ICE in the cell phone for the right number.

    The ICE idea came from British paramedic Bob Brotchie after the recent London terrorist bombings. When Brotchie responded to bombing scenes, he often didn't know which phone number to call to get important information about the patient.

    Brotchie thought it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for people to file next-of-kin phone numbers under in their cell phones, and the ICE campaign was born.

    The campaign is growing. It's circulating throughout the globe, including into the Bay area, through the Internet.

    Polk County resident Roger Wise says he plans to program an ICE number in his cell phone.

    "I think it's a good idea," Wise said.

    But Bob Jackson, a supervisor with Polk County Emergency Medical Services, says he doesn't think the ICE numbers would be of any use to paramedics in the U.S.

    "I don't want them (family members) coming to the scene," Jackson said. "We're going to be off the scene quicker (if family isn't there). And it doesn't help to have extra people on the scene upset, understandably upset, but still sometimes in the way."

    And there's another problem. Paramedics have HIPAA laws to follow. Those laws generally prohibit the disclosing of health information to other parties, even family members, without a patient's consent.

    "I can't give them information," Jackson said. "I can ask them, but I can't tell them what happened to the patient, by law."

    Jackson agrees there are some situations where an ICE number programmed into a cell phone would come in handy, such as when a person has a stroke. Bystanders can contact that person's family.

    Jackson also gave another example.

    "I had an Alzheimer's patient who left the house to get cigarettes in Sarasota," he said. "We picked him up here in Haines City. I could call the family and say, 'We have your husband. Where do you live?' Because he didn't know where he lived."

    While having an ICE number programmed in a cell phone can't be of help in every situation, some say it also can't hurt. Brotchie, the British paramedic, said he's already heard of success stories where a programmed ICE number helped emergency workers gather important information about a patient quickly.

    ICE your cell phone
    « on: July 28, 2005, 10:15:53 AM »

    Paramedics will turn to a victim's cell phone for clues to that person's identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

    ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone no. of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones contacted quickly. It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

    Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately. ICE your cell phone NOW!

    (Especially for us street riders. And I read one suggestion where they put the emergency info on a piece of paper and put it in their helmets, in case the phone gets trashed.)







    Good Post buckwild750, this is a topic that needs to be brought up every few months so new riders can ICE their cell phones.

    Emergency Contact Information DMV **IMPORTANT**

    Just an FYI and a Caring Heart


    This became effective in the state of Florida as of 10/02/2006. You can have 2 emergency contacts attached to your FLORIDA drivers license. In other words, if you are in an accident and they run your drivers license 2 emergency contacts will pop up so they do not have to search for relatives.


    Go to http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/ click on emergency contacts, put in your contacts. I just did it, you need your driver's license number and names & all (home, work, cell) phone numbers of 2 people you would want to be called in an emergency.
    Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition thats troublesome
