School will begin once again in September, and many parents worry about what will happen if their child is injured on the daily travel to and from school – particularly when the child is not accompanied by an adult.
Unfortunately, accidents are a part of day-to-day life. Being prepared can make the difference in an emergency situation.
This is why we offer the In Case of Emergency (ICE) program. ICE is a term that is internationally recognized by emergency responders. An ICE card has the name and phone number of two emergency contacts, which the first responders can use to quickly reach the injured person’s immediate family.
Pinning an ICE card on your child’s jacket or attaching it to their bicycle helmet can give you the peace of mind that if something were to happen, you would be immediately notified.
The ICE program is free of charge; all you need to do is provide the relevant information so that we can laminate and mail your ICE card(s).
