ICE (In Case of Emergency): 

A campaign encouraging people to enter an emergency contact number in their mobile phone’s memory under the heading “ICE” (for “In Case of Emergency”), has rapidly spread throughout the world.  ICE allows paramedics or police to be able to contact a designated relative/next-of-kin in an emergency situation.  Almost everyone carries a mobile phone now, and with ICE we’d know immediately who to contact and what number to call.  The designated person may even know of your medical history.  It only takes a few seconds to do, and it could easily help save your life.

Edgefield County EMS also offers CPR/AED AND Basic First Aid Classes – Taught through the American Heart Association

Due to the materials required for the classes, we ask that you schedule two weeks in advance.  The cost for classes for the general public are $60.00 per student regardless of combination, $40.00 per student for fire department volunteers/first responders and $30.00 per student for county employees.
