    Adding medical and emergency contact information

    You can add and edit ICE (In Case of Emergency) information in the Contacts application. You can enter medical details, such as allergies and medications that you are using, plus information about relatives and friends who can be contacted in case of emergency. After setup, your ICE information can be accessed from the security lock screen. This means that even if the screen is locked, for example, by a PIN, pattern or password, emergency personnel can still retrieve your ICE information.
