The Acadian I.C.E. app is offered free of charge as a public service from Acadian Ambulance Service. The Acadian I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) app creates an emergency contact banner for your home screen or lock screen. If you have an emergency and are unable to communicate, or if your phone is lost, authorities will be able to contact your designated emergency contact -- even if your phone is locked!
Many people have an “ICE” contact listed in their contact list, but if your phone is locked, your list cannot be accessed. The Acadian I.C.E. app solves that problem by putting your emergency contact name and phone number on your home screen and/or lock screen.
The app also allows users to store info regarding current medications, medication allergies, and health conditions. This information, accessible only after the phone has been unlocked by the user or the emergency contact, can ensure medical personnel are informed of any special needs or conditions you may have.
Ratings and Reviews
Make sure you follow iPhone instructions.
Worked great for me! It creates a photo with the information and then YOU have to set it as lock screen. Very simple. Just go to your picture, choose the created picture with the information stamped on it and then set it as your lock screen (click arrow at bottom left of photo, select wallpaper, select set lock screen).
Like the app. It is easy to use but it could use a few tweaks to make it better. Such as, you can list your medications but not the dosages. Any emergency responder would be able to see your meds but would only be guessing as to dosage which could be dangerous for the patient. Easy med error in an emergency.
An Ingenious App!
This is a simple app that allows you to superimpose an In Case of Emergency contact name and phone number on a photo. You can then set that photo as your lock screen. Great if like me you keep your phone locked. I hope I never have to rely on a first responder needing it but I am glad to be prepared!
