You’ll never know when you’ll find yourself in a sticky situation.
I was never the paranoid type, but I keep scouring the interwebs for tips that might just save my life — or another person’s. Here are some of the most useful tips that will save your life!
1. Keep small amounts of money in your jeans pocket, bag, jacket, car, and in places all over the house.
Me: “what do you even keep in your wallet?”
Sister: “$1. Emergency money. Just in case I need an emergency gum ball or something”

3. Take a photograph of your luggage before checking in at the airport.
Before checking in at the airport, take a photograph of your luggage. A picture is worth a thousand words if your bags get lost!

4. Never tell anyone that you don’t have a home security system – especially door-to-door salesmen.
5. And if you really don’t have a home security system, befriend your neighbours.
6. Make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are working.

7. Put blankets, gloves, snacks, and a tool kit in your vehicle.
last night I was so cold I used the emergency survival blanket from the first aid kit that came in my car 😂😂😂

8. When taking your children to a crowded place, write your contact information on their wrists and cover it with liquid band-aid or a waterproof see-through dressing.
9. Don’t leave chewing gum in places young children can reach and always cut grapes in half or quarters.
You know you work with children when you realise you’ve cut the grapes in half but you’re not even at work 🙈

10. If you’re choking on something, make as much commotion as possible to get help.

11. Sleep with your car keys on your bedside table.
Keep your car keys on your night stand. Your car Key contains a panic button. Home invasion? Push it, alarm will sound & scare the intruder.

12. When you need someone in a crowd to call for help, point to a specific person while yelling out what he looks like (e.g. you wearing a black cap) and tell him to call an ambulance or the police or whatever you need.
A rescuer should address a specific person when asking for someone to call for an ambulance, instead of a general request.
