I thought that everyone had heard about or knew about the term I.C.E. and then I spoke to my spouse! The response was “well, ya I guess I remember hearing about it.”

For those who do not know, I.C.E. stands for In Case Of Emergency. You may have heard that you should put an I.C.E. contact in your phone so emergency crews know who to contact if something was to happen to you and you were not conscious.
According to the I.C.E. website, “on average it takes 5 hours and 51 minutes for family members to be contacted in an emergency.” That is a long time and a scary statistic.
We often feel safe these days because most of our family members have cell phones. But just the other day my niece’s cell phone went on the fritz and no one new. She thought she had sent a text to her mom letting her know she was at a friend’s house. The text never went through and the cell phone stopped working. My niece did not know the phone was not working so thought everything was okay because she had not heard back from her mom.
My sister did not receive the text, her daughter’s phone was not ringing through, and she found herself in a panic, driving the streets to see if she had been hit by a car and was in a ditch somewhere.
In the end, my niece was fine. She was safe at a friend’s house as per her text and that was soon found out and solved. She also got a new cell phone the next day.
The question the above scenario leaves us is, if something happens to you or your child, is there some way to get the right person notified as soon as possible? This is the exact role of the I.C.E. Tags The I.C.E. Tags have the key information to make sure that the right person is contacted right away.
The I.C.E. Tags are very affordable, durable and come in different formats so they can go in wallets, on keys, shoes, helmets and backpacks.
I purchased my I.C.E. Tags and I love the product and concept.
Enter today to try and win a Family Pack of I.C.E. Tags and spread the word to other families and parents.
