Are you familiar with ICE? This stands for In Case of Emergency.
All Apple iPhones have a built-in health app. If you have an Android phone follow the direction here.
Why should you complete the ICE app?
This app puts your emergency health information on the lock screen of your phone so EMTs, police, or the fire department can access your info as quickly as possible. We never like to think about having an accident, falling, or having a health issue like diabetes but always be prepared by completing your ICE information.
- Name, address, and phone number
- updated medical information (medical conditions, prescriptions, allergies)
- emergency contacts
- blood type (if known, if not ask your doctor)
- medical insurance information
