Being one of the most prosperous cities of West Bengal after Kolkata, Durgapur has a relatively high per capita income and hence all the hazards of a big city is very much prevalent here. One would hardly find anyone in this Steel city who does not carry a mobile phone.
But most of the people of the industrial town of Durgapur hardly knows about how to use this mobile phone “In Case of Emergency”. Most of durgapurians have not heard about this campaign called “ICE”.
We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends that can be contacted in case of emergency.
If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn’t know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this “ICE” (In Case of Emergency) Campaign
The concept of “ICE” is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. All you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name “ICE” ( In Case Of Emergency).
The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn’t know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as “ICE”.
For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will make a difference! So don’t waste any more time put this concept to use immediately. Everyone and anyone reading this article must take the initiative of spreading the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today!
