Tips for reducing your exposure to electromagnetic waves

  • Use an earpiece.
  • Send SMS messages or e-mails.
  • Telephone in areas with good reception: the more bars you see on the phone’s display, the less wave it will produce.
  • Find out the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) value of your phone. The SAR is a unit for measuring the quantity of electromagnetic energy that is absorbed by the body when a mobile phone emits at maximum power.

In Case of Emergency

ICE is the acronym of In Case of Emergency, a program that aims to help first-aiders (such as paramedics, firefighters, and police officers) contact a victim's family in order to obtain important medical information.

This encourages people to enter a contact under the name "ICE" in their mobile phone book, in order to save the phone number of the person they want to be notified in case of an accident.
