ICE – In Case of Emergency

ICE Logo

Most Canadians carry no next of kin details. Yet many carry a mobile phone, most of whom have it on them all the time

There is no simpler way of letting the emergency services know who to contact should you be involved in an accident than by using ICE.

Standing for In Case of Emergency, ICE will allow ambulance crews and police officers to quickly contact a nominated person, who can be informed of the incident.

As Ottawa’s premier training and consulting firm for Palm Powered Handhelds, we feel it is our responsibility to educate Palm Users about the ICE campaign, and to create resources that can make implementing ICE on a Palm Powered Device as simple as possible. Solutions At Hand was founded on the principle that handheld technology can help improve the quality of one’s life; we’re pleased to support the ICE campaign, which can help SAVE lives! As such, we’ve incorporated the creation of an ICE contact into each and every training course we deliver, and we’ve created the following resources which we are making available to the public, in order to simplify the creation of ICE contacts on mobile devices.

We’ve also made resources available to Emergency Personnel, so they can know how to access the ICE contacts in a variety of handheld and smartphone devices.
