    7. Learn CPR and the Heimlich maneuver. Remember A, B, C….airway, breathing, circulation. If someone is choking but still coughing and moving air, it is safer to leave them alone.

Use the American Heart Association course locator tool.
    8. In the event of being caught in a live shooting crisis, run away if you are able, hide, and always remember to turn your phone onto silent mode.

    10. If you notice you are being pulled out to sea by the water current. This is called a riptide. Do not panic. Do not swim directly to shore. Swim parallel to the shore until you no longer feel you are being pulled out, then swim to shore.
    11. If you think you are being followed while driving, make a right turn at the next 4 chances. Do not go home! If you are still being followed, head towards a police station.
    12. If you or someone you know is impaled or stabbed by an object like a knife, tree branch, glass, etc. do not pull the object out. The object may be stopping or slowing down the bleeding from the injury. Hold pressure around the object to help stop the bleeding if necessary. Let EMS or the hospital remove the object.    ** This is the First Aid kit I keep in my car BTW. **
    13. If you are dealing with a bleeding wound or injury, elevate the area if possible, then hold continuous pressure on the area with a bandage or even a piece of clothing. Do not let up the pressure. If bleeding is profuse and does not stop after 20 minutes, continue to hold pressure while someone else calls 911.
