ICE - it's something that forms on our roads this time of year (got your winters on yet?)
ICE - in England particularly, it stands for In-Car Entertainment. They mean of the electronic/musical/sound system variety.
But to paramedics, ICE stands for In Case of Emergency.
Now we all should not use our cell phones while driving. But there is a safety component to them - if you get stranded, you're only a few pushed buttons from connecting with someone.
But what if you're unconscious?
Apparently, paramedics will scan a phone's directory looking for the ICE indication - that's who they would call, to notify that there's been a problem, to get medical info, whatever.
So maybe while you're waiting at the tire store for your winters to be installed, re-program your cell so that your top priority emergency contact number is prefaced with the letters ICE.
Might even save your life some day!
