ICE Your Phone
Choose a responsible person to be your In Case of Emergency (ICE) contact. Record their contact information.
Inform your ICE contact that you have chosen them as your designated contact and provide them with information that may affect your treatment. Remember MAD:
- Medications - list all current medications you are taking, including herbal and organic supplements because they can and do interact with some medications.
- Allergies - List all known allergies, especially to medications, but also to foods.
- Doctors - Include the names and phone numbers of doctors or other medical providers responsible for your regular care.
Add this contact as a new entry, with their phone number, in your mobile phone address book under the heading "ICE." For examble: ICE - William or ICE - Dad. When entering multiple ICE contacts, put a number directly behind the word ICE in each one to prioritize them for the emergency responders. For example: ICE1 - William, ICE2 - Dad.
