ICE (In Case of Emergency)
Programming emergency contact information into your cell phone under the listing "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) and carrying the Lee County Sheriff's ID card in a wallet or purse can assist first responders in contacting family and friends in the event you're involved in an emergency.
Daily, people are treated locally by EMS and First Responders who were unable to communicate with rescuers due to illness or trauma. Emergency contact information is frequently vital to facilitate treatment during life-threatening situations.
To program ICE into your cell phone:
- Access the address book feature of your cell phone.
- Enter the name ICE.
- Enter the phone number of your husband, wife, parent or whomever needs to know about you in case of an emergency.
In addition, download and print our own ICE card and carry it in your wallet or purse.
Also putting one above the visor in your vehicle could be helpful as well.
Just another way to keep you safe and informed.
