15. What if there is a situation that is not covered by the application (ICEcare)?
An emergency preparedness kit can be organized for any emergency. Keep the items that you would most likely need at home in one easy-to-carry container such as a trash can,
plastic storage container, camping backpack or duffel bag. Store it in a convenient place, and put a smaller version in your car. Keep items in airtight plastic bags.
Remember to change stored water and rotate food supplies and medications every six months. Check the supplies and re-think your needs every year. Consult your physician
or pharmacist about storing prescription medications and maintain a list of your prescription needs.
- Water (recommended amount is one gallon per person per day)
- Non-perishable food
- First aid supplies
- Battery-powered radio and batteries
- Duct tape
- Cash/traveler's checks
- Toiletry items
- Special needs
- Important documents
- Pet supplies

18. What mobile platforms are supported?

Notifications; i.e, Users will not be able to remotely secure ICEcare on their mobile devices (as they can with Apple iOS and Google Android devices).
19. What about ICEcare Support for BlackBerry?
ICEcare provided support for older versions of BlackBerry devices. Support for new BlackBerry devices is in development and will be available soon.
20. I have seen ICEcare on other mobile platforms as well. How is that supported?
Earlier, ICEcare was supported on other mobile platforms, which has been discontinued as the platform vendors have discontinued their support.
This includes: Windows Mobile 5.X/6.X, Palm Garnett, Symbian Series 60 Third Edition, UIQ Series and Java Mobile. If you are using ICEcare on any of those platforms,
then you may continue to do so, but for obvious reasons, ICEcare support those platforms has been discontinued.
