Clearwater Real Estate Agent explains New Emergency Contact Registry

Tampa Bay Florida  Community News

 

suncoast hospital in largo floridaIf you have an accident in the Tampa Bay area- who should law enforcment call? 

Susie Roscoe or Brandon, Florida explained not too long ago how to store your Emergency Contact person's info on your cell phone in her article: I.C.E. - In Case of Emergency.

Now The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has now enhanced their website to allow anyone with a Florida Driver's License or Florida Identification Card to designate an Emergency Contact, whose info will be stored on their website- so it can be quickly accessed in an emergency.

To register for this service just go to their website: www.hsmv.state.fl.us and then Click on Emergency Contact Information Link. 

Seems like something we should make a priority and take the time to do and as we head into the summer - please drive safely.

Great info for the residents there to know! It's funny how these type of newsbits get passed by.

Cyndee what a great program. All states need to implement one like this.
Posted by Ashley Drake Gephart (Drake Intel Group) over 11 years ago

That is a fantastic program for the residants of your State I hope drivers take advantage of this.

Cyndee, this is great information.  Thanks for posting this.
Posted by Peggy Edwards, REALTOR - Green Designation, e-PRO, Tampa Bay, FL (Future Home Realty) over 11 years ago
That would sure take the worry off some people.
Posted by Thesa Chambers, Principal Broker - Licensed in Oregon (Fred Real Estate Group) over 11 years ago
Cyndee, great post... I sent out an email to everyone in my database awhile ago about ICE.  It's really important that everyone updates their cell phones.  Emergency personnel know to check cell phones when they need to get a hold of your loved ones.

Paula - I had never heard about it before Susie told us - and this seems to be a great followup action

Cyndee....  it seems that this is catching on in so many areas now. I heard about the I.C.E. tag for your cell phone. But I keep forgetting about the actual word. What cell phones should come out with is a hot button on the phone. When you hit it, it dials your emergency contact, so you don't have to remember these key words. hhhhmmmm   Maybe I should make my own cell phone.  In any case, this was interesting.

Ashley - I agree - I've had several car accidents (none my fault) and luckily I could give my info each time - I think it's great too

Mana - the good news is it's not just for drivers - so if you have an id card with them you can use it too.

Peggy - I thought it was great info - I appreciate Susie Roscoe bringing it to my attention - she's such a great resource.
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Thesa - I agree, as I've mentioned I can see lots of benefits to it - Does Oregon have anything like this yet?
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Irina - the funny thing is I programmed Jack's number in my cell phone as my ICE# and now whenever he calls me it says call from ICE (since it comes before J in Jack - LOL)   
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Jeff - I agree - read my comment above to see what happens when I program ICE in my cell phone (LOL) your button idea would be great - thanks for visiting and commenting. 
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago

Cyndee, it's funny you mentioned... same thing is happening with my phone when my dad calls me.  He is my ICE.  :-)

Posted by Irina Netchaev, Pasadena CA Real Estate (Pasadena Views Real Estate Team, Inc.) over 11 years ago
Irina - it scared me the first time it happened before I could figure it out - did it startle you too?
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
I see that.... funny....
Posted by Jeff Belonger, The FHA Expert - FHA Loans - FHA mortgages - USDA loans - VA Loans ( Social Media - Infinity Home Mortgage Company, Inc) over 11 years ago
Cyndee, sure did... and still does once in awhile... in my senile moments that is.  :-)
Posted by Irina Netchaev, Pasadena CA Real Estate (Pasadena Views Real Estate Team, Inc.) over 11 years ago
Just good to know  - so now Jacks my Ice Daddy! :-)
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago

Cyndee,

This is a great program that everyone in Florida ought to know about.  I'll have to see if we have something similar here.

Rita - it is a great idea - I just wish the cell phone had a button like Jeff said :-) - that was a great idea. When you check it out let me know what you find out.
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Katrina - as usual - you're on the ball girl- glad I found out about it and the new DMV tie in.
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Great tip Cyndee, I think every state should have this available.  How do you find all this??
Posted by Darrel Quebedeaux (Evergreen Realty & Associates Inc.) over 11 years ago
Cyndee, I had not heard of this.  It's an excellent idea.  Thanks for the heads up!  I'm heading over there now.

Cyndee - EXCELLENT!!  I had no idea that I could link "MY ICE" info to my driver's license!  EXCELLENT!!  This is even better knowing I always have my license and usually have my phone.  THANKS for the kudos about my I.C.E. Blog!!  Hopefully none of us ever "needs" to use the service(s) mentioned.  YOU GO GIRL!  As usual...   :-)

Posted by Susie Roscoe, Real Estate Specialist | Brandon, FL (Signature Realty Associates) over 11 years ago
Cyndee I had not heard this, how neat! I like it better the ICE, I don't always have my phone with me, I've dropped when riding on the bike, so I leave it at home when we're out riding now, but always have my ID. Than you!

Posted by Leah Ross, Tampa, Florida Mortgage (Your Tampa Bay Mortgage Source) over 11 years ago
Cyndee.... Great information, I have to check to see if Illinois has implemented something like this!  I know that you know longer have to sign the drivers licenses to be an organ donor, you just register yourself on-line.  This is a nice feature!

Hi Cyndee - this is a great tidbit to know about.  One of my sisters lives in Apopka, and she told all of us in my family about this, and now we've all set up the phonebooks in our cell phones like this.  Great tip to share with everyone.

Congrats on the Week in Review feature!

Ann - thank you for your kind words - glad your famiy took advantage of it - did you have the challenge we did with names that begin after the letter "i" - Jack now rings in as "ice" (LOL)
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Hey Paula - nope, didn't have that problem.  I listed them in my phone as "ICE - Karen - sis", etc.  I figured that way, if any emergency personnel are going through my cell phone book, they'll know who those identified as "ICE" are to me and why they're listed that way.
Posted by Ann Cummings, Portsmouth NH Real Estate Preferrable Agent (RE/MAX Shoreline - NH and Maine) over 11 years ago
Cyndee, That sounds like something that every community should do, as well as every family.
