At a young age, we were taught about the steps we needed to follow to avoid a disastrous circumstance or keep things under control. Most of these things come naturally to us. However, some of these precautions may have escaped our notice or are less visible than others.
we are believes that it is better to be safe than sorry, so we’ve put up a list of things you can do to stay safe.
- In a large crowd, point at someone and say, “YOU, call an ambulance,” instead of saying, “Somebody call an ambulance.”
Because many others are there, the bystander effect leads people to feel that someone else will help the victim, so they go about their business, trying to get out of the situation fast. That’s why, if you don’t address someone in particular, you might not be able to obtain help in a crowded setting. So point to someone in the throng and ask for assistance.
- When you’re traveling, put a tag with your name inside your bag, not outside of it.
Not only are the tags on the outside readily removed, but if your suitcase is misplaced, the airline will examine it to determine who it belongs to. The tag with your name on it will be quite useful.
- Do not follow the ambulance with your loved one to the hospital right away.
It’s heartbreaking when our loved ones need to be transported to the hospital, but it’s equally crucial to look for yourself. If you’re upset, don’t immediately follow the ambulance to the hospital since you’ll get too focused on it, develop tunnel vision, and possibly break traffic regulations. Wait a few minutes before going to the hospital.
- You can disable your Face ID by saying, “Hey Siri, whose phone is this?”
If someone tries to unlock your phone using Face ID, you can ask Siri whose phone it is, and the phone will become inaccessible without typing a password.
- If you see someone from a missing person poster, inform the authorities that you’ve found them, not the third-party number listed on the poster.
You never know who the number on the poster belongs to or if the person has been reported missing. Someone could be attempting to harm them. Always contact the authorities instead to be safe.
- When you move into a new house, change the locks immediately.
A lot of people don’t think to do this right away, but you never know who might have the keys to the house you now own. So do it for your own safety.
- When you can’t find your glasses, open the camera on your phone and look at your surroundings through it.
Because the camera has everything in focus, you will be able to view objects more clearly through the camera without glasses. You can save time hunting for glasses this way.
- Keep your shoes on during a flight.
While it’s understandable to want to take your shoes off on a plane, it’s best to leave them on, especially during takeoff and landing, which are the most dangerous phases of the journey. If something goes wrong and you have to flee, you’ll be glad you have your shoes on and won’t be stepping on glass barefoot.
- When crossing a road during nighttime, use your phone’s flashlight
Because it may be difficult for cars to see people at night, it is a good idea to make yourself more apparent to let them know you are crossing the road. Your phone’s flashlight feature will come in handy.
- Tape the paper with your contact information in your elderly relative’s apartment.
If your older relative lives alone, having your contact information visible is a good idea in case paramedics come and need to call you. Otherwise, they can take much longer to locate your phone number.
