ICE Contact USA is Now Offering Coverage to College Students and Their Families
ATLANTA, September 1st /PR Newswire/--ICE CONTACT USA is now offering coverage to
college students and their families. ICE COLLEGE provides a comprehensive emergency
notification program to college students and their families.
ICE [ In Case of Emergency ] In an emergency situation, emergency personnel are
faced with on the spot decisions. When every second counts, emergency personnel
need answers fast so they can quickly and effectively give you or your loved
ones the medical attention they so desparately need.
ICE COLLEGE is here to assist emergency personnel on your college student’s behalf
should they become involved in an emergency situation. ICE COLLEGE members can help
themselves and emergency personnel by providing ICE COLLEGE with your student’s
medical information and their emergency contacts.
"The need and desire is greater than ever for parents to have their college student’s
necessary medical information and emergency contacts readily available”, said John
Craddock, President of ICE CONTACT USA. “We are the number one emergency
notification service in the world and we have fielded numerous requests to have
our program made available to college students and their families.”
“In most families sending their kids away to college is the 1st time their children
will be away for extended periods of time. Ensuring that their children are safe and
protected in case of an emergency is obviously critical to all parents. And having
to navigate through all of the privacy laws and HIPAA rules in times of emergency
can be a very real challenge. ICE COLLEGE satisfies all of these concerns by
providing needed medical information and family contacts when their student might
not be able to do so if they are injured, unconscious or unable to communicate. We
are very pleased to have partnered with UNIVERSITY PARENT GUIDE to extend our
worldwide ICE coverage to college students and their families,” said Craddock.
Founded by British paramedic Bob Brotchie after the 2005 London bombings and brought to
the USA in early 2006 the program has rapidly expanded to millions of members worldwide.
Each ICE member is issued a unique ICE identification number that appears on all of the
ICE forms of identification. The ICE COLLEGE student will receive an ICE Identification
card, ICE Alert stickers, ICE Key Fobs, and ICE vehicle decals. By becoming an ICE College
member you will be able to store up to four (4) emergency contacts, any pertinent medical
information, religious preference, and donor request in our secure data base. ICE CONTACT
USA has a call center that is maintained by highly trained professionals 24/7 365 days a
year. All calls are authenticated to ensure the validity of the situation before releasing
any medical information or attempting to make contact with the member’s emergency contacts.
“We are very pleased to be offering our ICE program to college students and their families.
It literally can save your life,” said Craddock.
