ICE = In Case of Emergency

I recently received an e-mail from a fellow HOG member here in Delaware with a great idea. Everyone should program their emergency contact phone numbers in their cell phone under ICE which stands for “In Case of Emergency”. Put a blank space in front of ICE so that it is the first number listed. You can have multiple ICE numbers such as ICE1, ICE2, ICE3.

This will help emergency workers contact your family if anything should happen to you. A paramedic came up with this idea.

This tip could be very helpful in an emergency. You should e-mail everyone you know to do this, especially your motorcycle riding brothers and sisters. Please spread the word!

If anyone has additional safety tips of this nature, please post them here under comments.

  1. Don’t let your wife keep the cell phone in her rear pocket as it might go flying out while riding up the North East Extension of the PA Turnpike.

  2. If I get hurt, I want somebody to call a DOCTOR…what the hell’s my wife going to do about it?? 🙂

    Just being a wiseass Jay. That’s actually a really great idea! I think I’ll give it a shot and at our next meeting, I’ll mention it to our Safety Officer and see if he likes the idea enough to share it with the membership. The only really bad idea is the one that never gets mentioned. Keep on keepin’ on!

  3. Please feel free to pass the word either by adding it on your blog at My Harley-Davidson Mystique, e-mail it to your members, tell them at the meeting or just do everything possible.

  4. I once got a call from someone who had found my son’s lost cell…they just dialed the number labeled “Mom”!
    No one can help you if they don’t know how. I have heard this idea before. Call it “ICE” or anything else that is obvious…people will listen.

  5. That’s a really great idea. I always take my cell on the bike, but I was thinking it was for me to call someone if I needed help. Guess I just assume everything will be OK on the ride. I’ll put some ICE numbers in right away. Thanks for the tip.

Please keep up the good work and add me to your blog roll if you get a chance. Feel free to post this tip about ICE on your blog at Bikerchickz Blog.

  7. Thanks for adding me….I noticed something wasn’t right there. I’ll add you and when I figure out how to link to the article I will. Fun and interesting blog.
