A great idea!

Sometimes when surfing the web you come across a great idea that should be shared with everyone. This is one:
ICE your cellphone
The I.C.E. (in case of emergency) system for highlighting emergency contacts in a cell phonebook was the brainchild of a British paramedic, who has often struggled to get contact details from shocked or injured patients. His ambulance district in East Anglia and the Vodafone mobile network last year launched a national campaign encouraging people to enter I.C.E. in front of loved ones' contact information in their phones so emergency responders know exactly who to call, right away.
