1.  Your 24/7 Personal Service Accidents and emergencies can happen at home, in your vehicle, at your workplace, or whatever you may be
participating at, be it sports, leisure or play.  When our Emergency Service providers attend an incident, they will be alerted to the fact you are prepared
with your I.C.E. Info by the numerous I.C.E. Info Alert stickers and products displayed on either your wallet,
key ring, fridge, letterbox, front door, vehicle, cell phone, workplace, luggage, hard hat, cycle helmet etc.They will then look for your unique International I.C.E. ID number on your I.C.E. Info Photo ID Card, mini ID
sticker, or mini key tag etc. This number enables any Police, Fire, Ambulance or Medical officer to have your
vital health information at their fingertips and via our 24/7 Crisis Line.

They can confidently administer the most effective first aid and be informed of any known allergies, existing
medications, medical conditions and health wishes.  Your I.C.E. Info is the only form of ID that records your
unique National Health Index number - this is the key to all your medical and hospital records.  
Paramedics can radio ahead to your hospital and relay your NHI, speading up the admission process and
quickly informing hospital staff who can retrieve any necessary file notes etc. Your nominated Emergency Contacts and Next of Kin can be informed of what has happened. You prioritise
who you want called first and we will endeavour to make contact and inform them of the situation.  If travelling overseas, email your Travel Itinerary and Insurance details and travel with peace of mind with your
I.C.E. Info International Photo ID Cards. 
We appreciate that emergencies happen worldwide – we have you covered anywhere in the world.

2.  Your 24/7 Support Service

Your 24/7 Support Service is rapidly put into action for the important loved ones 
in your life. If they’re important to you, they’re important to us. Plan and prepare for an emergency and what steps you would like take to make sure your children, elderly
dependants and also your family pets are taken care of if you’re not able to come home tonight. We record your Crisis Plan and then ensure your wishes are actioned if needed.Register your children and dependants and what location they are usually at during your working week.  
Record their full names, ages, the school they attend, class/ form they are in, their class or head teacher, and
the physical address. 
If something happens to you they can be easily located and taken care of by your emergency contacts.Register your  family pets  so they can be taken care of in case of emergency.    Record their name, breed,
description, micro-chip details, medications, favourite pet food, vet details, cattery / dog kennel information,
and your crisis contact person who we can contact at short notice to take care of your pet if needed. 3 .         YOUR SAFE VAULT SERVICE

In case of emergency, all your vital documents are organised, and secure in your ‘Safe Vault’ of six
different Registers
.  There is no financial information recorded on these Registers, so the threat of theft
or mis-appropriation of any of your vital information is alleviated.Get protected and prepared as part of your personal responsibility.These documents are not needed as part of your day to day living, but in an emergency they are crucial and
often cannot be found!  Choose from any or all of the following Registers:
1)       Insurance Register
We spend a fortune on insurances in case the 'unexpected' occurs. This is the loving thing to do to
provide for ourselves and our loved ones in covering our individual areas of risk.  There is little point having insurance unless someone else knows you have it. We register all your
insurances and also your Insurance Broker so that if you need to make a claim the information can
be quickly retrieved and acted upon.
2)       Organ Donor Wishes
In New Zealand, organ donation is only possible when a person's brain has died.  Brain death
occurs when blood no longer flows to the brain and it dies.  In  most cases, organ donors have
died from a head injury or bleeding in the brain.People who are brain dead cannot breathe on their own, think or feel pain. There is absolutely no
chance of recovery.  Other organs can survive for some time afterwards when breathing is done
by a ventilator.  Organ donors offer the gift of life.If you would like to be an Organ Donor, use this form to register your wishes to  make an anatomical
gift of specific organs or tissues. One donor can save or enhance the lives of up to ten other people.  You can also record the purpose of your donation - be it transplantation, medical research, medical
education or another purpose specified by you.Your wishes are witnessed on the form, and we can provide a copy for your next of kin, your doctor,
hospital, minister, lawyer or other nominated person.
We encourage you to discuss your wishes with your family and we can provide a copy of your
Organ Donor Wishes for them.
3)        Funeral Plan
In our busy lives we plan for many things - our careers, our wedding, our children, our vacations
etc - but rarely do we plan for our death.  We have no control in entering this world but we can plan
our final farewell.The Funeral Plan allows you to document how you would like to be farewelled from this life in YOUR
special way.  It removes the burden on your loved ones to guess what you would have wanted.  
They will be grieving their loss so this will provide them with some certainty in knowing what your
wishes and preferences are.Your plan can be as simple or as detailed as you wish.  You can add to your plan or change it at any
time.  Any prepaid funeral or insurance details are also recorded here. 
4)       Living Will (also called an Advanced Directive or Health Care Proxy)
A Living Will is a legal document which allows you to instruct health care providers about your
end-of life wishes with respect to medical procedures and treatments you would want provided to
you in case you become incapacitated.  Your Living Will reflects your rights of consent and medical
choice under conditions whereby you can no longer communicate for yourself.  Your Living Will can be changed as your situation or wishes change.  It can be as simple or as
complex as you would like.  The decisions you need to make are best considered before there is
a health crisis.  This ensures your wishes are recorded and made clear to your loved ones and your
health care professionals who are responsible for your care.  The most common end-of-life medical decisions that you must make involve:*  Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
*  Do Not Resuscitate (DNR)
*  Do Not Intubate (DNI)
*  Artificial Nutrition or HydrationYour Living Will is signed by you and witnessed by another person.  It goes into effect when you are
no longer able to make your own decisions.   Take personal responsibility to record your desires when
you are of sound mind and able bodied.

As part of your Living Will, you will be required to appoint a Health Care (Medical) Power of Attorney,
who will be entrusted to make healthcare decisions for you when you cannot.  You might want to pick
a family member or friend who is comfortable talking to doctors and can relay your personal wishes.  
You can also appoint a second person as an alternative in case your nominated person is unwilling
or unable to assist.Copies of your Living Will can be given to your next of kin, doctor, hospital and anyone else you wish
to nominate.
5)       Social Will (Digital Legacy)
Our lives are often exposed to the world via our online profiles and social media presences.  If you
passed away unexpectedly what would you like to happen to your accounts?  Many families have been
affected by the lack of information and access to profile passwords etc after their loved one has
passed away - it can be a cruel reminder of their loss and they have no control over the content of their
loved one's public profile.Your Social Will records your Facebook, Twitter, Linked In profiles and any other internet accounts or
presences you may have.  Decide if you would like to leave these accounts open as a memorial site,
deleted or just closed.Record any passing last words or messages that you would like to convey and nominate a Social Will
Executor to fulfill your wishes.  This Will is available for all members aged at least 12 years old, and is
signed by you and also witnessed by another person.
6)       Last Will and Testament.
A Will is one of the most important legal documents a person can sign, yet a significant number of
people die without ever having made one.  This causes costly delays and distress for family members
while their estate is wound up.  Apparently, 95% of people do not have an up-to-date or valid Will.  Anyone of sound mind who is at least 18 yers old can and should make a will.  Your Will records your
instructions about what you want done with your property when you die and how you want your
dependants to be looked after. Once you die, all your property and possessions are referred to as
your estate.Having a current Will can relieve financial and emotional strain on your surviving family after your death
and help minimise any dispute about your estate. It can also help minimise legal costs and fees which
eat into the estate itself.

You should make a Will even if you don't own major financial assets as you can build up possessions
that have a sentimental value to you and others.  Your Will allows you to decide what will go to whom.You should always make a Will when you marry or have children, and you should revise your Will if a
relationship ends.   Parents are usually the legal guardians of their children.  It is an excellent idea to
appoint a testamentary guardian for your dependant children in case both parents die together or you
are the sole guardian.There's no point having an up-to-date Will if no one knows where it is.  Your Will Register records the
location of your original Will, your legal specialist, your appointed Executor and Trustees, your ordinary
and enduring Power of Attorney for your property and personal care and welfare, your appointed
guardians for your children, and also your acountant, financial advisor and insurance broker.We don't keep a copy of your Will, we keep a secure record of where your important documents
are stored.   This information is securely held in 2 separate locations for security reasons. 

All three critical services are linked together by:

·         Your International I.C.E. ID Number, 

·         Your I.C.E. Info Photo ID Card, and

·         Our 24/7 International Crisis Line.
