My name is Bob Brotchie, a Paramedic from the United Kingdom who, in 2005,
launched the ICE initiative whereby I asked mobile phone owners to add an I.C.E
contact to their phones address book to try to help emergency responders quickly
confirm the identity of a casualty by contacting their loved ones (when the casualty
could not communicate for themselves). This also had the benefit of establishing
previous medical history, allergies, etc while allowing early repatriation with the
casualty’s loved ones.
The initiative has found acceptance by the global emergency community and has been
an outstanding success. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has
supported and promoted the idea. Why not Google “ICE – Bob Brotchie” to see some of
the stories, uptake and support? It also has its own ‘wiki’!
I would love to hear if ICE has worked for you, and in what circumstances.
I have heard anecdotal evidence where ICE has played a positive part in treatment, and
of where the patient could not be saved but where ICE has nonetheless given some
peace or understanding at the most desperate of times. But now I would like to try to
document any evidence that can be provided.
It is great to advise that cellphone firmware is now being provided at source with ICE
already in place in the contacts area of the phone!
If you have a story, I really would love to hear from you. Any information would be
