No one wants to find themselves in the middle of a dangerous situation.  However, the world is a changing place and there are mare and mare dangers popping up in areas that we never thought would ever be dangerous.  As such, we need to make sure that we are prepared from any emergency response situation that may arise.  Here are some tips and tricks that you can sue to make sure you and everyone you care about are safe.

Have a plan

A plan is the key component to safety.  When we have a plan people will know what others are thinking and what they will do when a situation arises.  In the plan you need to have a lot of different components that will work together. 

Meeting locations

When we are separated from our loved ones, we need to have specific meeting locations setup to go to in case of an emergency.  This can be a neighbor’s house, a family member, school or a public place such as a parking lot.  These meeting locations need to be specific to the exact foot.  To have an area such as the mall is too vague.

Know and document vital information

In a medical emergency it is important that we know if someone can take a specific medication or not.  We will also need to know if there are any medical conditions that first responders need to know.  When giving first aid or trying to save a life, this information needs to be on a bracelet or other documentation that is accessible by everyone. 

Don’t panic

Don’t panic.  Emergency situations are going to be very stressful and need to be handled calmly.  If we panic we will make mistakes or give wrong information.  They say a cool head wins, so stay cool, follow the plan and everything will work out.
