In Case of Emergency
The “ICE” Form
An “In Case of Emergency” (ICE) information form
allows you to give vital medical information to paramedics and hospital staff.
These forms are easy to read and provide critical information to healthcare
providers when you may not be able to communicate due to the emergency.
This form is vital for those living alone because there may be no one
who can be contacted quickly to speak for you in an emergency.
How to Use the Form
The form comes as a PDF file, and can be filled in and printed at a computer.

(Right-click the link, then on the pop-up menu select “Save link
as” or “Save target as”.)
We recommend that you save the “ICE” form into your computer,
fill it in on the computer, and then print it out – the result is clear and
easy to read.
Keep the form up-to-date with any changes in your medical conditions,
medications, or personal contacts. If you keep an electronic copy on your
computer, you can update and print it whenever anything changes.
Where to Post the Form
After printing the completed form, put the form in a handy place where
emergency responders will see it. A good place is the front of your
refrigerator – responders will look there first.
