My family has done this for years.  I rather they call my Sister who knows all my medical history.  Then for them to have to rummage threw my purse to find my wallet.  Plus, one less thing to carry in my wallet.

I rather doubt many paramedics spend much time looking at one's cellphone in case of an emergency. Better to carry a card in wallet or purse or wear an alert bracelet with such information.

>> ICE - 'In Case of Emergency'

>> If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) Campaign the concept of 'ICE' is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell (mobile) phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name 'ICE' (In Case Of Emergency). 
>> The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as 'ICE.' 
>> 
>> For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will make a difference! 
>> Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today! 
>> Please forward this. It won't take too many 'forwards' before everybody will know about this. It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest. ICE will speak for you when you are not able to.
