The kind of food you should bring is canned vegetables and fruits, so mostly canned food.. Another take: . The above is great for a kit you don't have to carry it. The canned foods contain water, thus killing two bird with one stone. But they're heavy.. So -- if you need to be mobile..:. You w…ant to carry the most calories at the least weight. Fats meet this bill but they're REALLY messy, and can thus infect easily. This leaves us at carbohydrates. For serious weight-to-calorie effectiveness, there are compressed sugar bars that are sugar, flavoring (mint is popular), and glycerine (so they don't freeze solid in super-cold temperatures). These were popular on Everest climbs -- they're a heavy calorie boost, and are easy to preserve.. For longer treks, consider salt or potassium and a vitamin supplement.. Lastly, you say food, but I do need to mention water. Humans can survive a surprising amount of time with no food (80 days for one prisoner in Ireland on a hunger strike!), but no water is a deadly emergency. Have water supplies and purification tablets as well, in case all else fails. ( Full Answer )

What should you do if you are being overtaken by an emergency vehicle flashing its emergency lights?
Pull over if you can do it safely to let them by. The reason they only flash the lights without sirens is because they do not want to upset the people they are going to take care of. Some people with heart conditions could die if they get excited. Some other emergencies require the people invol…ved not to be subjected to the noise of the sirens. They do not want to get them upset. When they have ONLY THEIR LIGHTS flashing, they may be reacting to life-threatening situations just the same as when the sirens are going. You should always pull over for them. ( Full Answer )
Turn on your flashers to help the emergency vehicle. If the emergency vehicle is moving and has a siren running, pull over to the side of the road.

Your personal safety is ALWAYS your first priority. If the scene becomes unsafe, GET AWAY! If not, now there are two victims and if you were the only rescuer, who is going to help you and the original victim. Next priority is the safety of bystanders. Then, you always check the following in this ord…er: Mental status (conscious or unconscious), Airway (is it open), Breathing (is the victim breathing and is it adequate - Begin rescue breathing or give two breaths and start CPR), then Circulation (check for severe bleeding and stop it and check for pulse and start CPR if no pulse). These are the IMMEDIATE LIFE THREATS.. Next, you would check for the POTENTIAL LIFE THREATS. This is a rapid head-to-toe check looking for serious injuries, broken bones, signs of internal bleeding, etc. In addition, if the victim is able to talk or if there is family around that can give info, ask them about signs and symptoms they are having, allergies to medications or foods, medications they are taking, past medical history, last time they had something to eat or drink , and what they were doing right before they were injured or became ill. The reason for taking the time to do this is because a lot of times the person may become unconscious before the ambulance arrives and now they and the hospital are having to start from scratch trying to figure out what is going on. It goes a LONG way to improving proper care and treatment. ( Full Answer )

Dark twisty country roads become a hazard to even the responding firefighters and emergency medical techs. If you can't arrive to the emergenc…y alive then you have compounded thngs by creating two emergencies. The amount of time that you save by speeding is really minimal and makes you a threat to yourself and others on the road. It's best to get there as safely as possibly so that you can help those in need. ( Full Answer )

Well, The number one step is not to panic. Or you could end up being the emergency!
Take a deep breath -or three- and survey the scene... swivel your head 360 degrees to take in all angles leading toward the area of concern... FIRST Ensure that YOU are safe. Second Ensure that others are not endangered. Ask the victim if they want help. They might refuse. Lightly s…hake them (by the shoulder or foot) if they are unresponsive. Shout! ' Help, somebody call 9-1-1' loudly! If they are unconsious, a 'yes' answer is implied, and the Good Samaritan laws will protect you. If they are not breathing, lay them on their back and initiate the CPR procedures, if you have been trained. Once you begin CPR, you CANNOT stop until medics arrive, so GET HELP FROM A PASSERBY. Of course, if it's a non-life-threatening emergency, be sure to tell the operator the nature of the emergency. ( Full Answer )
