In Case of Emergency (ICE) Cards

The Ramblers would like these cards to be carried which will allow walkers to provide their emergency contact details and important medical information. Walkers should keep ICE cards in an accessible place, eg the top pocket of rucksacks, so that if something should happen on a walk the walk leader or emergency services have easy access to this information. It's best to use a ballpoint pen to fill in the card, the ink is permanent on the card and will not smudge. ICE cards can be downloaded here.

The carrying of these cards is optional but obviously recommended.
