What is ICE?

ICE (in case of emergency) was an idea hatched by former paramedic Bob Brotchie in 2004 for phones users to store emergency contact details under the acronym ICE in their mobile phones. This way in the unfortunate event of an accident, the rescue services would be able to quickly identify and contact a next of kin immediately.

"If we had a uniform approach to searching inside a mobile phone for an emergency contact then that would make it easier for everyone."
