Use VALARMs to set reminders ( 3.6.6, page 70)

A "VALARM" calendar component is a grouping of component properties that is a reminder or alarm for an event or a to-do. For example, it may be used to define a reminder for a pending event or an overdue to-do.

Example:

BEGIN:VALARM
ACTION:DISPLAY
TRIGGER:-PT5M
DESCRIPTION:This is an event reminder
END:VALARM
