ICE numbers stored in phones are no longer a useful solution, as most modern smart phones are locked with a passcode. This prevents medical staff from gaining access to your emergency contact. There is, however, another item you have on you at practically all times – your wallet. While credit and ID cards have your name, more information is often needed in an emergency. Having all the essential information accessible on one card could help medical responders provide the best help and care, and to contact your next of kin promptly. Information about medications and allergies facilitates making fast decisions about treatments. And, especially in the case of heavy blood loss, it is important for emergency staff to know your blood type.
