If you are considering this application, you may understand the original purpose of ICE (In Case of Emergency), but you may not be aware that the ICE concept gained international attention in July 2005 after the London Terrorist Bombings. ICE was conceived and promoted by British paramedic Bob Brotchie in May 2005. Bob Brotchie, supports and endorses smartICETM and smartICETM 4Family applications! Bob understands the detailed quality of the application and the importance of using an international symbol for ICE, not just any cute icon. Paramedics have to recognize it around the world!

Tim Green, former firefighter/paramedic says, “After serving 30 years in emergency service, I thought I would remember all of the history details in the event of an emergency situation with one of my family members……I was very wrong! Having recently dealt with a critical emergency medical event affecting one of my own family members, I could not remember all the medications, doses, hospitalizations and surgeries.” The chances are that you couldn’t either!

EMS Options recommends that you place the “smartICETM 4Family” Icon in the upper left-hand corner of the main page and if you use the “Passcode” feature, activate the screensaver option with an emergency contact name and number. This feature is built into this application’s set-up and will give the emergency contact listed the option to verify who the caller is and provide a Passcode for access to your medical information.
Also, always have a back-up plan for storing emergency medical information. See ICE4Safety for hard copy cards to carry in your wallet or purse and other emergency preparedness information.
CAUTION: ALL USERS SHOULD VERIFY THAT THE EMERGENCY SERVICE NUMBER PROGRAMMED, WORKS IN THEIR AREA. CERTAIN AREAS DO NOT HAVE A 911 TYPE EMERGENCY SERVICE AND YOU MAY HAVE TO RE-SET THE EMERGENCY SERVICE NUMBER FOR YOUR REGION OR COUNTRY.
