Handling Emergencies

Don’t panic! That’s probably good advice in case you have an emergency.

But there are also lots of places you can learn new skills that come in handy when an emergency happens. Here are some things to think about:

  • Fire safety training: Your local fire department offers free fire safety training. All you have to do is call them!
  • First aid training: The American Red Cross and Community Education both offer courses in basic first aid. This is really important so that you know how to take care of yourself if you get a burn, a cut, or a more serious injury. It’s also important in case someone is choking or has a stroke or a heart attack. The Red Cross can also suggest items that you should have in your home for safety including a fire extinguisher and first aid kit.
  • Self Defense Courses: Your local police department and Community Education both offer self-defense courses. You can learn how to protect yourself so that you can always feel safe at your place and when you are out in the community.
