Well, now you're talking about something totally different. Obviously, and this hasn't changed in my 20+ years on the job, checking for medic alert tags and similar things like that has nothing to do with checking a cell phone for NOK information. The only time I do that on a scene is for DNRs (looking for NOK information).

This is suggesting (and for the past 4 or 5 years I have seen this circulate on the internet, specifically on motorcycle message boards) that first responders will check these "I.C.E." listings in cell phones, so they can "immediately" notify your family if there is an emergency. Even when this does happen (looking for contact information), it isn't immediate, and it shouldn't be.

Sure, having this information in your cell phone isn't going to hurt anything, but it isn't the best way to carry this info, heck, even if you aren't in a motorcycle accident and are in some other type of accident or emergency.

One of the biggest PITA is when EMS/ Fire arrives and the calling parties are yacking on the cell phone to someone they *think* they need to talk to and won't hang up. For some reason, people think they have to let people know things as soon as they happen... it's our ADD society.

So, before anyone gets their panties wadded up, I'm not saying that people shouldn't be notified in the event of an accident or death- I'm just saying that #1 the cell phone is one way of carrying information, but it's not the best way, and #2 there are plenty of other actual important things that should be done prior to thinking about notifying anyone about an accident.

i've had it in my phone for a couple of years... its never been used.. when i was told about it i just kinda shrugged it off as another # in the phone and stuck it in there, it was a family member that told me to do it, i wasnt going to blow it off... but i dont think it will be used if i go down or if something happens.

There are a bunch of things out there on the market for this (helmet stickers, etc). I could get my graphics guy to make up some reflective ones on the cheap if yall want, but there are several commercial brands out there.

I can see it being used when you're DOA to notify next of kin. Usually we just scroll through the phone book and try to find mom, dad, sis, ....something of that sort. But this is for dead folk, not injured people.

...Dog tags although mine are real, you can get then cheap to say just about anything

Then again that just says who I am.

Maybe have 2 one for who you are any major allergies (i.e. penicillin, diabetic, etc) and one for emergency contact or NOK


...i feel naked without them :(

the people in the E.D. mostly do not like family in with the patient as they get in the way and seriously impair quality of care. So unless you are dead they are not likely to ruin your care by calling your family.
