Make sure you’re wearing the right clothes in cold weather
Remember that wet skin radiates heat much faster, so try to keep it dry during the winter. ĐảMake sure your body temperature doesn’t warm up too quickly by wearing woolen clothing – such clothing has the ability to absorb moisture. Cotton and other fabrics are low-moisture-absorbing materials – wearing clothes made of cotton materials will keep you cold throughout the day.
If you know you might get wet, you need to wear a waterproof outer layer to keep warm. If the water soaks in, the layer of clothing will only make you colder. You can get wet from rain, snow, and splashes (like when you’re on a boat or there are puddles on the road). In addition to keeping dry, you also need to look for clothing with good insulation. You’ve probably heard of fleece, but this material isn’t for everyone. You can explore other options with other materials that are easier to find and hit the shopping spree!
Prevent suffocation with the Heimlich maneuver
Suffocation It usually happens when you get something stuck in your throat. In this case, you should do the abdominal thrust method. To perform a tummy tuck with another person, you need to stand behind the person, placing your hand on the person’s navel.
Your hands must be held tightly, jerking upwards as if lifting the person up. Repeat this until the contents of the patient’s throat come out, usually 5 times at most. If the above doesn’t work, place the person on a fixed horizontal surface such as a table, chair or railing and place your hand on the navel, tugging on their stomach. Repeat until the choking object is spit out.
Note during take-off and landing
According to researchers, 80% of plane crashes happen during specific time periods. Be careful in the first 3 minutes when the plane takes off and 8 minutes after the plane lands. The best way to deal with this is to always be careful, stay alert in these moments.
You should also pay attention to some small actions like Fold the dining table when taking off/landing: The dining table takes up quite a bit of space in the seating area. Similar to the regulation of upright seats, folding the dining table will help passengers on the same row of seats move quickly and limit collisions if the plane crashes. Do not go to the toilet during take-off/landing: The toilet is a place without protective equipment, when the plane shakes, passengers cannot be fixed in one place, easily bumped, may even get stuck here..
Pulling the window curtain during take-off/landing: If you have to evacuate because the plane has trouble, open window blinds will help passengers quickly identify the safest exit; and no loss of vision when the light changes suddenly when leaving the plane. This also makes it easier for the crew to see abnormalities in the fuselage, wings, aircraft engines or foreign objects in the air. From there, they promptly notify the checkpoint for support.
While in the fire
KWhen you detect a fire, don’t panic and be afraid, The first thing is to stabilize your breathing, calm down to find a way to handle it. You should observe where the flame and smoke are. If the fire is small, you should find a way to put out the fire, you can use powder, CO2, sand, wet blankets or other things that you can find right around that can put out the fire.
If you are unlucky enough to be stuck in a Fire, try to keep your distance from the ground as close as possible. Toxic substances such as CO2, CO, ammonia, organic acids… or smoke are often suspended overhead. So don’t hesitate, take a wet towel to cover your nose and crawl on the ground to escape the fire.
Remember that your body’s tolerance is limited
As many studies have shown that Each person’s body has a limitnNo one can be healthy without eating or breathing. Always keep the following principles in mind: The average person cannot live more than 3 minutes in the absence of air; Humans cannot live more than 3 hours outside in extreme weather; Humans cannot live more than 3 days without water; Humans cannot live more than 3 weeks without starvation
Our body has a stable body temperature of 37 degrees Celsius, but if the ambient temperature reduces body temperature, it will cause very noticeable effects. If your body temperature drops to 35 degrees Celsius, your limbs will tremble and it will be difficult to move. At 32 degrees Celsius, most people will pass out, the body will give up trying to maintain body temperature. Breathing drops and heart rhythm disturbances when the temperature drops to 28 degrees Celsius. And when the body temperature drops to 20 degrees Celsius, the heart stops beating. However, there was once a case where a girl was walking in the weather – 20 degrees Celsius and her body temperature was only 16 degrees Celsius but was still saved.
We seem to be more tolerant of cold than heat. The highest body temperature that can sustain life is 42 degrees Celsius, because at this temperature the body’s essential proteins begin to decompose. Compared to the outside temperature, even a fully equipped firefighter can only withstand ambient temperatures of up to 93 degrees Celsius.
Do not use mobile phones while in traffic
Health and safety experts recommend that you Do not use cell phones while in traffic. The phone will make your brain pay attention to it without paying attention to the surrounding situations, your brain will not be aware of the dangers and risks that may happen to you. For example, if a car is out of control and it’s coming your way, you won’t be able to tell what’s going on.
For motorbikes, driving with one hand cannot be sure and safe with two hands. Moreover, holding the phone in the left hand will prevent the motorbike driver from using the combined brake system in the scooter. When encountering unexpected situations, this is also the reason why the driver uses the front brake strongly and suddenly, thereby easily leading to an accident.
For cars, one-handed use of the phone will distract you while driving, and at the same time can not react in time to unexpected situations. There have been many people who were too busy using their mobile phones to cross the street without observing, changing directions without signaling, forgetting to stop at red lights, etc., affecting other vehicles traveling together, even causing accidents.
Do not pour water into the hot oil pan
Do not pour water into the hot oil pan Because oil is lighter than water, when they are mixed together, the oil particles will float to the top and spread out wherever the water reaches. When a large amount of water in contact with boiling oil ignites, because the water is heavier, they will sink to the bottom but evaporate immediately because the boiling point of water is only 100 degrees Celsius. The steam will take away the particles. oil and rise into the air, the whole result will be a big fire and very easily lead to a fire.
Firefighters warned everyone not to use water to try to put out the flames burning above oil pan is boiling when they contain fat or oil. Since water is heavier than oil, it will immediately sink to the bottom of the pan and begin to evaporate, which will make the flame burn even more intense. In this case, you should cover the oil pan with a thick cloth, quickly turn off the gas stove or disconnect the power. Also you can use a fire extinguisher in this case.

Don’t inflate your life jacket before, during take off
During flight safety instructions, the flight attendant will show you where to life jacket Usually it will be placed under the seat. In case the plane lands on the water, when the flight attendant asks you to wear a life jacket, put it on but do not inflate it quickly. Wait until you reach the door of the plane and be signaled by the flight attendants so you can exit the door. When you get out of the plane door, pull the zipper up.
If you intentionally “activate” the life jacket while in the plane. Not only will it not help you escape safely, but on the contrary, there is a high chance that you will drown. When the plane sinks into the sea, water overflows into the cabin, a person wearing an inflated life jacket will emerge from the water and be pressed against the ceiling of the plane. It is very difficult for them to get out. After that, the water will slowly rise to the ceiling of the compartment and cause the victim to die. Therefore, wearing a life jacket incorrectly also causes you to have an accident.
