In Case of Emergency
ICE ( In Case of Emergency )
Programming emergency contact information into your cell phone under the listing "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) and carrying a SCSO ICE identification card in a wallet or purse can assist first responders in contacting family and friends in the event you're involved in an emergency.
Many of our Scotland County Citizens each year are unable to communicate with the Scotland County EMS personnel AND First Responders due to illness or trauma. Emergency contact information is frequently vital to facilitate treatment during life-threatening situations.
To program ICE into your cell phone:
-- Access the address book feature of your cell phone.
-- Enter the name ICE.
-- Enter the phone number of your husband, wife, parent or whomever needs to know about you in case of an emergency.
In addition, you can download and print the SCSO ICE card from the Scotland County Sheriff's Office website and carry it in your wallet or purse.
