Here fellas, since I picked the .45 argument earlier tonight, maybe I can give something useful to you guys...
I received this idea on a police trainers group I am on...

ICE - In Case of Emergency

A campaign encouraging people to enter an emergency contact number in their mobile phone's memory under the heading ICE (In Case of Emergency), has rapidly spread throughout the world as a particular consequence of the recent terrorist attacks in London.

Originally established as a nation-wide campaign in the UK, ICE allows paramedics or police to be able to contact a designated relative / next-of-kin in an
emergency situation.

The idea is the brainchild of East Anglian Ambulance Service paramedic Bob Brotchie and was launched in May this year. Bob, 41, who has been a paramedic
for 13 years, said: "I was reflecting on some of the calls I've attended at the roadside where I had to look through the mobile phone contacts struggling for
information on a shocked or injured person. Almost everyone carries a mobile phone now, and with ICE we'd know immediately who to contact and what number to
ring. The person may even know of their medical history."

By adopting the ICE advice, your mobile will help the rescue services quickly contact a friend or relative - which could be vital in a life or death situation. It only takes a few seconds to do, and it could easily help save your life. Why not put ICE in your phone now? Simply select a new contact in your phone book, enter the word 'ICE' and the number of the person you wish to be contacted. For more than one Next of Kin ICE1, ICE2, ICE3.

If you think this is a good idea please pass it on to everyone in your address book.

You may want to get you family and friends involved. It is easy, free, and it could save your life. Or, at least it could let your family know what's
going on during a medical emergency.

According to a local EMS medic, this is complete BS; he said they'd probably get sued for going through someone's phone.

EMT: OK, we're probably gonna get the kids dad....
Guy on the other end: Hello, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement!

If paramedics are bored enough that they can look through my phone, then my wife will probably sue them after I'm gone anyhow. Something tells me that they have better things to do then look through my phone book.

If someone picking up the pieces is looking through my phone book, they'll see such things as "home" and "dad cell", which should start them in the right direction.
