While recovering from an unforeseen medical emergency, author Vicki Hinze realized just how little her family knew about the practical but necessary information of routine and everyday life—doctors’ names, insurance policies, location of the will, information about the mortgage, passwords, accounts, etc. If her family had floundered this much when they could still ask her for answers, she wondered just how difficult it would be for them if they couldn’t ask, or if she wasn’t in a position to tell them.
With the The In-Case-of-Emergency Workbook, Vicki has created a space to capture all of this vital information so that families and loved ones like hers will have the necessary tools to handle affairs properly and without anxiety—in case of an emergency. Sections contained in this invaluable booklet include:
ICE Workbook Reviews/Hinze
“As a recovering attorney, I am impressed by the thorough coverage of information necessary to assist caretakers. One of the best things anyone can do for their loved ones is provide them with a single location for all of their vital medical and financial information. This is an excellent book for that. The author notes clearly that she is not an attorney, and that this book is not intended as legal advice. Laws differ from state to state. The reader’s loved ones may need more information than what is contained in this book, and they may not, depending on the reader’s location and personal situation. However, they will not need less. I will be using this workbook myself, and I highly recommend it.” –Piper Bayard
“I’m diabetic and take insulin. I’m also asthmatic. One of my fears is that I’ll have a blood sugar low, or an asthma attack, and be unable to provide my husband with important financial or medical information that he needs to know in such an emergency. Periodically, I email him a list of my passwords, and I do have a will, but that’s not enough. He has no clue what medications I’m taking or how to access my PayPal account—or even where I’ve hidden my best jewelry.
This is where Vicki Hinze’s In Case of Emergency Workbook comes in. When I first heard she’d created this ICE workbook, I thought it would merely be comprised of a few lists. I was so wrong.
Yes, the booklet does include things like passwords and medications, but it includes so much more—things I hadn’t thought of or realized my husband wouldn’t know where to find or how to access. That’s the beauty of this needed booklet. Recommending the ICE Workbook is a no-brainer.
I have to tell you, filling it out gives me a peace of mind I hadn’t realized I was missing before. Buy one for yourself. Buy one for your family members and close friends. They’ll appreciate the peace of mind, and so will you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. –Kathy Carmichael, USA Today Bestselling Author
“My husband and I are going to each do a booklet and then compare to see what we may have forgotten. I can’t tell you how many years we have said we need to do this, but we really didn’t know where to start. This will be a big help to us getting it together.” –Dolores Wilson
“Can you imagine a situation where you or someone in your family has no clue how to run the house or life without you? All those little every day details we don’t think about? We all hope we never do have a need for this, but not knowing our future makes this a very important guide to have in our possession! Born from the sad reality of it happening to this author, she now shares what she has learned. This workbook is separated into chapters of relevance and detailed so that is makes it very easy to fill out. It is also simple and not filled with extra stuff not needed. I am very impressed with the items and sections in here that I never would have thought of! Also included is extra ICE (in case of emergency) cards to put in obvious spots to let loved ones or emergency personnel know where to find your ICE Contact. Don’t ever be without this!” –Susan Poll
“I’ve often thought about “what if” scenarios where I didn’t have information that I would need in an emergency but never actually did anything about gathering that info. This book is a remarkable resource for doing just that – gathering important information and keeping it all in one place so it is ready when and if you need it. Being security minded individuals, my family would make sure it was in a safe place, when it was completed, so that if one of us needed it, we’d know where to find it. The author did a fantastic job of “asking” some very important questions that we all need to consider. This will become an important asset to me and I’ve already started completing the blanks.” –Gale S.

“I’ve looked at the ICE Workbook and think it’s wonderful. I take care of all our banking and paperwork, so my husband would be totally in the dark about how to pay bills or know where to find our wills and other important papers. I have told him where to find the key and the combination to our safe, but I’m not sure he remembers where the combination is. This workbook is the perfect document to have in case something happened to me (temporarily or permanently) and he had to take over paying bills, etc. You’ve done a great job with this workbook. It covers many of the things I’ve thought about, and even a number of things that might be needed and I hadn’t thought of. Thank you for putting it together and providing it to those of us who need to prepare for possible future situations where this important information would be needed by someone else. THANK YOU!” –Lois D.
“I cannot say enough about this book. This one stop informational booklet is a must have for every family.” – Bookcruiser
“I received the Emergency ICE workbook and looked through it. I’ve never really thought about the things mentioned in the book that people would need to know in the off chance I couldn’t tell them. But once I had kids these things started to pop up, health problems, long stays in the hospital and then we had a car accident and that REALLY made me think. This booklet asks all the questions you would need to tell or inform someone of and gives tips for things you may not think about. This workbook is worth the buy and you won’t regret it. “ –B.Gillilan
“ICE – In Case of Emergency is more than an emergency book it is also a book for those looking for the important answers when your loved one cannot answer your questions. This comprehensive book is a great way to start gathering information and having it readily available when you really need to find the answers to questions such as allergies and medications. The easy to fill out forms are grouped together under topics such as financial, legal, and personal requests. I personally liked the ability to have personal property including utility accounts in one area. I cannot say enough about this book. This one-stop informational booklet is a must have for every family.” –Linda Simons

It enables you to have things recorded in a very orderly fashion. I strongly suggest getting this no matter where you are in life. You never know when someone else will need to take care of things. After being sick myself, having grandparents who we had to search for things and my parents who are somewhat more organized this is important to have. for when you can not give directions. What is amazing is there are things that are included that I would not have thought of.” –Melinda Marks
