In Case of Emergency (I.C.E.) -When you can’t give rescue personnel your vital, medical information, JaredCo’s I.C.E. kicks in with everything paramedics need.

This simple app has saved lives, and it could save yours in case of emergency, providing EMTs with critical personal and medical data: your name, who to contact, important notification telephone numbers, blood type, allergies, your physician’s name and number, the meds you take, existing medical conditions – even the name of your health insurer, so you get the medical attention you need now. No delays.

Ideal for seniors and their families, folks with existing medical conditions, patients taking serious meds and all of us who drive, or simply cross the street each day. With JaredCo’s BlackBerry I.C.E., even if you or a loved one is unconscious, rescuers have all the information they need at the touch of an icon. This BlackBerry app is a life-saver and we have the proof – e-mails and letters describing how I.C.E. saved a life. It’s just one more way JaredCo apps make life better. And longer. Emergencies can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere, so why chance it? Give medics and rescue personnel ALL the information they need, even when you can’t.
