There is a grass roots initiative, begun in the UK, called the ICE (In Case of Emergency) initiative.  Both the goal and the implementation are very simple.  Take a moment and add some additional entries to your cell phone / PDA addressbook that start with ICE.  Examples are “ICE – wife”, or “ICE – Mom”.  That way, first responders who are coming to your aid can quickly determine from your phone (assuming it’s working of course, but it couldn’t hurt) who to call on your behalf.  It takes only a moment, and could save a lot of time and hassle in case of emergency.
