Phone emergency app available

SIDNEY — Salm-McGill & Tangeman Funeral Home in Sidney has made available to area cell phone users an app that can save lives.

Vital ICE, which stands for “in case of emergency,” is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play. The app gives first responders important information about the phone owner which can then be provided to an ambulance crew or hospital. It can also be sent directly to a hospital from the phone so emergency room personnel can be prepared.

To download the app, visit the appropriate app store, enter code #5130 and fill in the requested information.
