Sample text

She managed to stagger over to us despite bleeding from a head wound. Luckily my medical training meant that I was able to evaluate her condition (she needed stitches, but fortunately her skull wasn’t fractured), and arrange to get her taken safely out of the park, and driven to a hospital for treatment. My work in public safety means that I’ve had many opportunities to make a difference, but this one was personal, and helping friends and family has been the most meaningful to me. I’ve learned that having the skills to help someone can transform a potentially scary situation into one that feels manageable.

24 DON’T BE A HERO Equipping yourself with all of the very best of the personal protective equipment may make you feel like a superhero, but, the reality is, none of this is armor. You should still approach hazards as if you have no PPE on. This way, you’re consciously avoiding any overconfidence you might gain from all the gear that you are wearing. And overconfidence can kill you as it’s killed others in the past. Remember that PPE is your last resort for safety, and the best way to handle risk is to avoid it entirely whenever possible.

While statistically speaking, emergencies will remain strangers at any given moment, every human lifetime edges close to calamity at least once or twice. It might be a car accident, a natural disaster, a riot, or a fall down a flight of stairs. As I reviewed and edited this excellent and useful crisis-response compilation, it occurred to me that humans can be almost equally divided into two camps: those who expect the worst and prepare for it and those who hope it will never happen to them.
