Do you carry a cell phone? You probably have the numbers of friends, family members, business contacts and service providers keyed into your phonebook. Some of them are probably even on your speed dialing list.

But, if you were unable to communicate with police or emergency medical personnel, how would they know which of the many numbers they should call?


Use the initials ICE and the number of the person who should be contacted in case of an emergency. Use the entry ICE2, ICE3, etc for additional contact numbers.

It is not like me to ever suggest you do anything that would take you away from reading Voice From Jamaica, but for right now, I want you to get up from the computer, pick up your cell phone and program in your ICE number now! Then come on back, browse some more, read some previous posts, subscribe if you haven't already and then leave a comment. Please let the comment be your confirmation that ICE is now in your phone.

I don't remember who sent me the original email with this idea in it, but I think it is a great one. Please encourage your loved ones to consider this. Also, find out if the police and emergency personnel in your area are trained to look for ICE. If not, educate them to do so.

Your safety, Adored Reader, is important to me!

Does this mean that you have now programmed ICE numbers in both yours and Empress Kelly's cell phones?
Get at least one person per week to add an ICE number into their phonebook list. I can't imagine anyone ever regretting it.
