ICE Can Save Lives

Leave a comment

ICE.pngEveryone knows that ice can make a drink cool or reduce swelling, but if you put it on your cell phone, it might just save your life.

The concept is simple. Make a contact record in your address book with the name “ICE”, which stands for In Case of Emergency. In the note section of the record, you would list your name, blood type and medical conditions along with prescriptions and physicians. You’d also list the people and their phone numbers that can be contacted in case of an emergency.

Several years ago, a British first responder came up with the idea when his emergency unit responded to a call where the victim was unable to communicate due to illness or trauma. The victim’s wallet didn’t indicate specific persons to be notified in an emergency. The fireman went through his cell phone to try to identify a relative and wasn’t successful.

That’s when he came up with the idea of a universal entry into the address book for ICE where the necessary parties and special information could be kept. The story received a considerable amount of publicity and spread across the pond to the United States and into many other countries.

While it isn’t recognized everywhere, it is becoming increasingly more popular. Even if emergency technicians didn’t find it, the slight possibility that they would find it and it would make a difference would justify the few minutes it will take to create it.

Born and Raised on Oahu my approach to the real estate business is different than most agents working in the industry today. The average agent sells fewer than 7 homes a year while attempting to manage every aspect of the business all by themselves. This approach allows them very little time working directly with buyers and sellers because they are so overwhelmed with all the busy work that is required behind the scenes. My system allows me to spend 90% of my time working directly with clients who want to buy and sell real estate today and in the very near future. Here at John Riggins Real Estate we have been helping families move since 1977. We specialize in the Aiea to Kapolei area but not limited to Ewa Beach area. To see all the great ways we help buyers and to view what differentiates us from the typical realtor in the area, visit http://tinyurl.com/clientsuccessstorys Because of Ryan's Military Relocation Expertise, Ryan's success revolves around that same simple principle his Mother and Father instilled in him; serving those who serve our country. His track record shows that he puts his clients first and in a high paced market, he is making VA loans work for our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines. With previous clients ranging from E-5's to 04's, Ryan is ready and willing to make sure all those who have served our country, have every opportunity to own their piece of it. For the majority of people the purchase or sale of a home is their largest single investment. My goal is to guide you successfully and easily through the contractual, investment, and emotional decisions involved in the Real Estate process. I am committed to providing you, your family and your friends with superior service and expertise and to make it the most memorable purchase of your life.
