I'd like to set and save forever this Iptables rule, but i don't how i can do:

iptables -I INPUT -p icmp --icmp-type 8 -j DROP

This rule is very useful because it blocks ping requests and my pc is stealth on internet (i've tested it on Grc , but unfortunately i have to active that rule everytime i connect my computer to internet by mobile: is it possible to save it forever? so everytime i don't have to active it manually. Thanks a lot.

PS: I use Firestarter to configure Iptables.
