 What Is ICE?
ICE means In Case of Emergency. It's a new proactive program designed to provide emergency personnel with your "next of kin" emergency contact list via your cell phone in emergency situations if you are unable to give the information yourself.

How Is It Done?
Simply put the letters ICE with any emergency contact name in your cell phone address book. It's that easy!
