What is an ICE number and how should I record it?
ICE is an acronym for “In Case of Emergency”. An ICE number is a contact phone number of the person / people whom you would like to be contacted if you find yourself in an emergency situation. The number is recorded following the acronym e.g. ICE: 12345678. It certainly is useful information which is BEST ENGRAVED ONTO MEDICAL JEWELLERY which should only be worn by the owner.
Concerning an ICE NUMBER IN A MOBILE PHONE, there is a common myth fueled by fraudulent emails being circulated, claiming they were from the NSW Ambulance Service, recommending that ICE numbers should be put into mobile phones. See NSW Ambulance media release on 17th January 2008 on their web site: www.ambulance.nsw.gov.au. While the concept has some merit it can lead to misinformation where a mobile phone has been borrowed from someone else or where more than one person is involved in an emergency situation and it is not clear whose phone belongs to whom.
ALSO, note that most modern phones have locks and passwords on them - therefore no information can be accessed without the pin code. This issue can be overcome by INSTALLING THE EMERGENCY ID APP Available for iPhones and Androids. The Emergency ID App has the provision to upload a photo to the phone wallpaper; this ASSISTS IN THE MATCHING OF A PHONE TO ITS OWNER. Emergency contact and medical information can be stored on the app.
We have copied this advice for you, below:
ICE emails not from Ambulance.
There is an unauthorised email using the Ambulance Service of NSW name being sent around asking people to join the In Case of Emergency (ICE) campaign using their mobile phones. This email is not from the Ambulance Service of NSW. The Ambulance view on the ICE campaign is as follows:
The Ambulance Service has not launched any campaign supporting ICE (In Case of Emergency). Ambulance supports any method of contacting family in a critical medical emergency. Methods that can be used include information in diaries, wallets, drivers' licences, and mobile phones. The concept of ICE has merit and would be another source of information to assist with identification.
Note: in cases involving more than one patient or where a mobile phone has been borrowed from someone else, it may be difficult to confidently match personal belongings to any one individual. This may in turn lead to unnecessary distress. The Ambulance Service also advises that as with all stored personal information, individuals need to be mindful of confidentiality issues.
Our high quality stainless steel products are not only hard wearing and long lasting but also do not tarnish. Stainless steel is affordable and ideal for 24 hr wear; we have never had anyone have skin or allergic reaction to our stainless steel products and they have the highest clarity of engraving due to their quality finish.
All stainless steel bracelets and necklace medallions are suitable for 24 hr wear and are covered by a 12 month warranty (conditions apply). None of our stainless items for everyday wear need to be removed whilst showering or swimming.
We are so impressed with stainless steel that we discontinued our sterling silver and 9ct gold range. Stainless steel really is the superior product for medical jewellery!
Our bracelets come in a range of sizes; however most styles (see individual product descriptions) can be reduced in size by any reputable jeweller or watch repairer to suit yourself. We do not adjust bracelets. Adjustments are at the purchaser's expense and we cannot guarantee or cover under warranty any adjustments done by others after purchase. We find that the best people to adjust items with pins are watch repairers such as "Mister Minit" or others experienced in removing pins and links.

You DON'T HAVE to be a member to order Emergency ID - it is available to EVERYONE, without any yearly fees.
As WORLD leaders we are now leading the way in our DIVERSE range of products to be used with both our technological and non-technological based innovations.
Why is paying for a 24 hr service unnecessary?
* Emergency Services no longer use it!
After consulting with Emergency Services, especially Paramedics, they have advised that they only rely on information IMMEDIATELY at hand (engraved or carried on you), and they don't have the time to call ANY 24 hr numbers, so there is no need to pay for this old fashioned way of retrieving information.
* We have several other PRACTICAL & innovative products that can relay information in detail, such as:
Emergency ID SPOT pack (endorsed by The Australasian Society for Emergency Medicine & the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service), view YouTube footage here
Emergency Photo ID ICE Card. Your medical & emergency information can be quickly read & photo matched to you.
Emergency ID Wallet cards.
Emergency ID Smartphone APPS.
Emergency ID Medical Pouches. These are clearly labelled "CONTAINS VITAL EMERGENCY MEDICATIONS & INFORMATION"
* With no 24 hr number and information PRE-engraved on the back of our new range, it gives a LOT more room for YOUR information to be engraved and immediately visible. With this extra space we encourage people to have their OWN I.C.E (In Case of Emergency) contact engraved so they can be called by the Hospital. The NEW range (seen online with the world map on each product) is available online to everyone, worldwide.
Have you registered with eHealth? The Australian Govt have also introduced eHealth, which is a personally controlled secure online summary of your health information.
You control what goes into it, and who is allowed to access it. Your eHealth record allows you and your doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers to view and share your health information to provide you with the best possible care.
So you can see another independent reason why membership and 24 hr phone relaying is an unnecessary expense to you or loved ones. For more information about eHealth please see www.eHealth.gov.au
Due to phasing out our Membership 24 hr service we are now:
We are changing all the BACKS of our jewellery.

• Emergency and medical personnel are NOT taught to look for any particular brand of medical jewellery as there are numerous organisations and businesses worldwide that provide medical jewellery to benefit a wide range of people. I know first had that in the Police as long back as 25yrs we were trained to look for any means of identification on the person and as per normal practice no particular brand is recommended.
• August each year is Emergency ID Australia’s Medical Jewellery Awareness Month which is widely promoted through the media, social media, newsletters, eNewsletters, YouTube and mail outs. The major reason of this Awareness month is just that – to increase awareness not just through members of the public but Emergency Services in all states.
• Prior to commencing Emergency ID Australia, our founder, Nicole Graham, was a training coordinator in the NSW Police and understand first hand the important of regular information being provided.
• Emergency ID Australia is a legitimate 100% Australian owned and operated business which distributed Australia wide. It has the largest range of medical jewellery in Australia, thousands of active users in all states and territories, and has grown rapidly in recent years with approximately 200 products.
All items are custom engraved to suit the wearers needs, FREE of charge. We recommend you have engraved your most URGENT information as a 1st priority. Keep engraving short, clear and simple as a great IMMEDIATE & instant reference.
How much can be engraved on each item depends on your chosen style - some styles have more space to engrave than others, engraving spaces available are listed on each style.
See our Doctor/Engraving page http://www.emergencyid.com.au/engraving
We can engrave full wording or medical abbreviations can also be used. See guides below. The less wording used the larger we can engrave.
We recommend you have engraved an I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) phone number on the back of your item. IE who you want called in an emergency.
We also recommend that you were or carry more than 1 Emergency ID. Our Value Pack is by far the best value option coving a variety of needs. http://www.emergencyid.com.au/medical-alert-id-products/value-packs
To check medical abbreviations please consult a health professional or here are some example sites:
