Program In Case of Emergency

Recent history has demonstrated that persons not prepared to deal with emergencies are more likely to end up becoming victims.

It takes a average of 5 hours and 51 minutes for family members to be contacted in an emergency. When you program an emergency contact into your cell phone under ICE - In Case of Emergency- you provide critical information to emergency personnel.

During these turbulent and uncertain times, we as citizens have been called upon to actively participate in preparing for our safety and survival.

If you, your family or group have special medical or support needs, it is important that you to take the time NOW to ensure they are addressed instead of wasting precious time during the chaos of a crisis. This is where ICE ( In Case of Emergency) can help. Just program ICE next to the name of the person you would want to be contacted then emergency workers will be able to contact them.
