The Pelican Point Home Owners Association has developed an emergency notification system for its residents. The Pelican Point Emergency Alert System (PPEAS) will be used to notify residents in case of a natural disaster or any other emergency that may threaten people living in Pelican Point. You can sign up for this free service by clicking HERE or on the logo below this email.
After you sign up, you will be notified by text message or email in case of an emergency or road flooding/closure in the neighborhood. Hopefully, you will never hear from us, but please sign up today! Just in case!
This is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they come across your cell phone:
We all carry our mobile phones with name and numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other then ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends. If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phones but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) Campaign, the concept of "ICE" is catching quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during an emergency under the name "ICE". The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always cell phones with patients, but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as "ICE'. For more than one contact name, enter "ICE1", "ICE2", and "ICE3" etc. A great idea that will make a difference. Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our cell phones today.
