ICE - Central County Fire & Rescue


Everyone should have one, an ICE, or In Case of Emergency contact on their cell phones.


The idea is simple, add a contact in your phone whose name is ICE, if you are unable to communicate in an emergency, first responders, or medical professionals at a hospital will know whom to contact.


“There are some unfortunate situations where we need to reach the next of kin, or someone who can help make decisions for those involved in an accident, or other emergency situation,” explains CCFR Chief Russ Mason. “If a person has an ICE contact in their phone it simplifies the process. We also recommend those who have severe medical conditions or allergies to wear a medic-alert bracelet or keep other identification on them at all times.”
