Frequently Asked Questions

 What about security if someone steals or finds my keys?

 The only personal info on the I.C.Emergency usb is your name and phone number  There's nothing on the file that any thief could use. No address, no date of birth etc.

And if someone finds your keys, they can call you and return them.

Is it waterproof?

Yes the IC chip within the usb is coated with a waterproof membrane. I've tested mine many times and it's been wet when I ride my motorbike.

Just let it dry out- No problems.

Can I add more info to the file?

 Yes you can, the file is a RTF (Rich Text File) which means it's easy to add data to the file, e.g. pet details, kids details, advanced care plans etc. You can even drop a photo onto the file.

The file will take approx 200 pages of information. Its 128mb big enough for emergency info but not large enough for movies and songs etc. 

What if my wife and I swap cars?

Just put both drivers details on the file. e.g. MALE 56 details. Female 45 details. I suggest you drop a photo of each person on the file. 

Can Ambos and Police read these?

Many ambulances and police these days have computers onboard, some don't. Check with your local authorities. All hospitals and Police have computers to read the usb if it's required. 

I have I.C.E in my phone, isn't that enough?

It sa good start but phones are often locked, can easily get smashed or lost in accidents. This product isn't an either or, it's a both kinda thing. It's your choice, but for the price this is a great backup option. 

Do you travel? 

If you’re going to be travelling overseas, take your ICEmergency USB with you.
Go to Google translate, and enter, I am Australian Citizen (or whatever country you’re from) and the  Australian Embassy's phone number in the country/countries you’ll be visiting. That way, if you're injured, authorities know to contact your Embassy. 

The Credit Card size usb is ideal for travellers....
