There are over 215 million cell phone users in the United States today. Industry experts expect over 300 million users by 2010. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2006 that 1,600,000 emergency room patients could not provide contact information because they were incapacitated. So many individuals, including teenagers, leave the home each day without any identification or emergency contact information, yet carry a cell phone
A global campaign, started in the UK in 2005, has spread to the United States calling for individuals to program an In Case of Emergency contact (or ICE for short) into their mobile phones. ICESticker.com has developed an iconic self-adhesive visual alert to be applied to the back of the phone to serve as both as an alert for and invitation to paramedics and emergency personnel that the individual has established an emergency communication protocol.
Since launching in the summer of 2005, ICESticker.com has distributed hundreds of thousands of the original ICE Sticker™ visual alerts to a world-wide base of emergency responders, community organizers, government entities, private companies, and individuals just like you.
