Hello everyone. This is important (and not a joke) so please read it carefully.

"Following the disaster in London . . .

The Ambulance Service have launched a national "In case of Emergency
(ICE)" campaign with the support of Falklands war hero Simon Weston.

The idea is that you store the word " I C E " in your mobile phone
address book, and against it enter the number of the person you would
want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency".

In an emergency situation ambulance and hospital staff will then be able
to quickly find out who your next of kin are and be able to contact
them. It's so simple that everyone can do it. Please do.

Please will you also email this to people you know, it won't take too
many 'forwards' before everybody will know about this. It really could
save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest.

For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc."

What is the source for this?

Google turns up some third party references but there is nothing on the LAS or Simon Weston (WestonSpirit) website. 'ice simon weston' finds nothing at BBC News.

It seems to originate from the East Anglian Ambulance Service: .stm
Not a bad idea if it became commonplace.

Check out the Vodaphone web site and ignore anything about it being a scam. It aint and it is sad that e-mails had to do the rounds saying this.

Also delete daft e-mails about security scares. Sad sad sad!

Sorry chaps, I was wrong, put ICE in your mobile, it melts, it forks the electronics
