More About ICE: In Case of Emergency
My post yesterday about putting health information and emergency numbers into iPhones got a lot of views so I'm going to say more about the topic today. I've been trying to get simple instructions that might help you Android users but they're hard to find. Seems there are so many different makes and models of phones using the Droid operating system that there's no "one size fits all" fix.
What I did learn is that there are a number of Apps available in the Google Play store that could help. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.appventive.ice&hl=en is just one of them. I can't recommend anything because I don't use an Android phone. But if you are looking into downloading an app, it's always helpful to read the reviews posted by others who have used it.
Whether you have a Droid or Apple operating system, or even if you have an older flip phone, here's a good website to check out: http://incaseofemergency.org/ You'll find links to download the ICE app, as well as tips on adding emergency details to your lock screen in case you don't want to use an app or don't have a smartphone.
Among the good suggestions, take a selfie and include that photo so that emergency workers would know the phone is yours. Again, like I said yesterday, I hope we never get into life-threatening situations, but if we do, it's good to be prepared.
