Brooklyn residents urged to get their cell phones ICE-enabled
Following a British trend, Brooklyn residents are now being urged to get their cell phones ICE-enabled.
The plan called ICE, which stands for ?In Case of Emergency,? is already implemented in Europe. The initiative asks cell phone users to create a specific entry labeled ICE for emergency contacts. Paramedics or doctors can then access that number if someone is in an accident or has a medical emergency.
State Senator Carl Kruger (D-Brooklyn) is now urging all cell phone companies and retailers to enable the ICE category in cell phones. Kruger will be holding ICE-enabling sessions every Thursday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at 2201 Avenue U in Sheepshead Bay.
