ICE

Someone else posted about this elsewhere but I thought it relevant to make a new post as I have something I would like to suggest..
ICE (In Case of Emergency) is the information others will need to know about a person in the case of emergency.
Not always only medical information either.
I have to carry ICE with me at all times due to medication I have. I carry it on my wrist and in my wallet as I won't always have my phone with me but it's also there just in case.
However, I also think that when setting up ICE one should also include relevant details if caring for another.
In my case I have included the specific facts regarding my wife's condition as well as my own details.
It is she who is going to need the care if I am not there.
I bought a wristband which also gave me entitlement to save my information online.
Access to that information is granted when the wristband is read by anyone from Emergency Services.

I see no reason to be concerned as if anything were to happen to me at least someone would be informed about my wife. I have only divulged as much as I need to in order to ensure that.
